    Universities already finalized

    1) Based on my own research, I've locked these 4 universities and already sent my GRE/TOEFL scores -> Stanford,CMU,Columbia,UPenn

    2) Based on the recommendations of Masters/PhD grads from NLP, I'm strongly inclined to apply in the following universities as well->
    UC Berkeley, UWashinton, USC

    Only 2 quick points that need to be resolved

    1) Please categorize these universities as Ambi/Moderate/Safe + If possible, please provide any specific points about why I should/shouldn't apply here- (Eg- Funded MS? Most Job Prospects? Good as a safety school?)

    1) Harvard University
    2) Georgia Tech
    3) UT Austin
    4) John Hopkins
    5) University of Illinois Urbana Champaign
    6) Cornell
    7) UCLA
    8) Princeton
    9) UC San Diago
    10) University of Michigan
    11) University of Wisconsin Madison
    12) Yale University
    13) NYU, TAMU, OSU, ASU

    2) I realize that the current finalized list is ambitious. I would appreciate any suggestions regarding moderate/safe universities that I haven't considered yet and why they would be good to add here (if possible).

    I would be highly grateful if the awesome seniors here could guide me through this conundrum. Any peculiar details about any specific university would also be very helpful.

    -Thankyou so much!!

    You have an excellent profile and you would be welcome at the top schools. The key element in your application at this stage is your SOP and how well you write an original essay. Google me at Rao Advisors for help here. Berkeley, Stanford, CMU would be dream schools. [I am a CMU grad]. You should get into U Penn. Here's my school classification:

    1) Harvard University - Core
    2) Georgia Tech - Core
    3) UT Austin - Core
    4) John Hopkins - Core
    5) University of Illinois Urbana Champaign - Core
    6) Cornell - Core
    7) UCLA - Suggest dropping
    8) Princeton - Dream
    9) UC San Diego - Suggest dropping
    10) University of Michigan - Core
    11) University of Wisconsin Madison - Core
    12) Yale University - Core
    13) NYU, TAMU, OSU, ASU - NYU and TAMU are safe; suggest dropping OSU and ASU
