Computer Science Graduate School Admissions (1 Viewer)

Hi, I am currently a Sophomore studying computer science at the University of Minnesota. I want to go straight into a masters degree program when I graduate, but I don't know very much about graduate school admissions. Right now my GPA isn't amazing (3.13/4.0 scale). I am really kicking *** this semester though, and I can honestly see myself having a higher GPA when I graduate. What factors do grad schools take into consideration for admission? Internship experience? Is there any kind of an ACT/SAT type test for computer science graduate school? Do I have a shot of getting into a top notch graduate school if I can increase my GPA over the next three years? What does it take to get into Stanford/Berkeley/MIT, how about a normal university?
