Hey guys,

i am an industrial engineering student from india studying in one of the top 5 colleges down here (NIT only next to IIT's). I am applying for 2015. and i have selected few schools as of now. I just wanted to make sure is the list i have is "okay"

My profile as of now -
1 Journal articles in physics (general relativity)
4 Projects in physics (2 summer and 2 winter projects) (general relativity and Quantum mechanics)
1 Statistical Math Project
1 project to mathematically model product life cycle (used physics model for solving industrial engineering problems)
1 conference (this summer)
1 Lecture course by Prof michael berry (this summer)
1 Summer school in advance quantum mechanics IMSc (institute of mathematical sciences)

Over all GPA now in indian system = 7.2/10
GRE 315
PGRE yet to take.

Selected schools -
Ambitious - CMU, Zurich
Moderate- NSCU , SCSU, Waterloo

Other list - SUNNY buffalo, Univ of pittsburgh,Univ of Tennessee, Knoxville ,Univ of Kansas , michigan state , SUNNY stony broke, Univ of torento

I want to select couple of more univs from the "other list" that i would have a shot on.

please do tell me if these selection are over ambitious or okay-ish or too low for my profile.

And if i am applying (sending my scores and stuff) to department of physics for masters of physics program, do i have to apply separately for the astronomy(or any other physics) program or would mine be automatically considered for it too ?

Thanks a lot in advance
