    Profile Evaluation Needed. Also please answer 2 related questions. Thanks!

    Hello

    Please evaluate my profile:


    College: 74.7% from VTU
    10th=85% with 90% in science
    12th= 68%

    GRE: 320 (V-156, Q-164)

    Work Experience: 10 months at Google. Working as a Product Quality Analyst . (Since it is not a computer science related job- engineering or dev, does this affect my profile? Also since the company is GOOGLE, does it make a difference? )


    No Papers published.
    No backlog.
    Decent extra - curricular activities such as founder member of clubs in college, Social work at NGOs.
    Have certifications from MOOCs.



    I really want to pursue an M.S. But I am a little hesitant about the finances. I hail from a middle class family and there is no way I will be able to fund it on my own. I know I don't have a rockstar profile to fetch me scholarship from the likes of Stanford etc...so my best bet is to either take out a loan or go for a low ranking college and hope to get some tuition reimbursement.
    Would I be able to get some scholarships based on my profile?

    Thanks


    EDIT: Forgot to mention. Targeting 2016 Spring. Although have kept my fall options open as well.

    applying early gives you more chance of getting a scholarship ( the whole fee will NOT be waived though).

    for profile evaluation check this out yourguideone dotblogspot dotcom

    after getting the list of suitable universities...go to their respective websites and research about their programs and fees.

    apply for as many universities as you can( 6 -8). since you are targeting 2016, if you apply now chances are good that you'll get a scholarship.

    But remember don't panic .
