    you have a very strong profile. but in order to do phd you should have a ton of thesis projects, professors who can vouch for your projects, work experience of more than 3 years atleast, the avg age in a phd class in USA is 27-32. And the universities you have mentioned are top elite schools. you have to be a prodigy to get into those schools with your specialization. based on your current profile:
    1 Stanford- ambi
    2 Carnegie Mellon-ambi
    3 Georgia Tech- ambi
    4 Columbia Uni- ambi
    5 UPenn- ambi
    6 UMass- mod but chances are low
    7 Ohio State- mod
    8 U Minnesota- twin cities? ambi
    9 UC San Diego- ambi
    10 UC Irvine- can get into MS in computer hardware
    11 Arizona State- admit
