    You have a strong enough profile to target the top 20 IE programs. No need to look further down. But, with your profile and experience, have you considered an MBA with focus in Supply Chain/Operations Mgmt? You will have significantly better job opportunities with an MBA vs. an MS in IE. You should look into IE option, only if you are interested in Research fields or have PhD plans in future. If you are looking for good IE job opportunities with an MS, then truly target top 10 programs like Mich-Ann Arbor, Virginia Tech, Purdue, Wisc-Madison, NC State, and Cornell. Admission will be tough, but you should try. From the next 10, you can look USC, UFL, ASU, and Ohio State.

    Still, give a serious consideration to MBA.....take a look at programs offered by Fisher (Ohio State), and other 15-25 ranked programs.

    The funding situation for Master's students has significantly changed (for the worse) in most of the US programs, especially for non EE/CE/CS programs. Since I graduated quite some time back, its very difficult for me to assess the current funding situation is any of the programs. The best way to get this information is to directly contact current Indian graduate students for each program that you pick (or get admission from) to see what % of students get funding each year. That will provide a good comparison.

    With your profile (non-IIT and no research experience ), professors may not be willing to offer RA without knowing you and your work in person. For fields like IE (not the sort after as compared to EE/CE/CS), its always a catch-22 situation. If you want best job opportunities, you should go to the best schools. But, you need to compete with the top quality students for funding. Average schools have less funding, and you may stand a better chance to secure what they have. But, job opportunities are not the best. You can read additional posts from this thread http://www.msinus.com/industrial-engineering/2723.htm

    Coming to your school selection, you did a very good job. SUNY Buffalo and Clemson should be sure shots. You can also consider UMass-Amherst and UI-Chicago, which will be safe bets for you.
