Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello All,

I am a senior computer engineering student at a small university in West Virginia. I am in the process of applying to graduate school for a masters in computer science next fall. I have picked my target schools and contacted each department.

I am looking at: Carnegie Mellon, WVU, UMD, VA Tech, Penn State and Hopkins

1.) I am very skeptical of my chances of getting into Carnegie even though it is my definite first choice, thoughts?

2.) I've read up on the importance of the GRE, will my scores be OK? Or should I attempt to take it again?

3.) I've listed in my resume some of my work from school, should I include schematics, etc?

I'm really just looking for some honest criticism about my chances for getting into grad school, any advice is greatly appreciated!




Below is the link to my resume

Thanks!
