What are my options for graduate school?

  1. Jul 14, 2009 #1
    I'm a final year computer engineering student in India. I want to pursue a master's degree in the USA in the same or a related field.

    I just took the GRE (today). I scored 1600. I haven't got my analytical writing scores yet, of course, but I expect they'll be reasonably decent. I'll alse be taking the subject GRE in November, and I expect I'll do well enough for it not be be a problem. Letters of recommendation and the statement of purpose won't be a problem, either. Even the project work won't be a problem - I'm currently working on a systems-level project for the second most powerful supercomputer in the country.

    The only cause for concern is my academic record - it isn't exactly what you would call stellar. How far will these other things go towards compensating for that? Or is it something for which it is not possible to compensate? Do I have a shot at getting into any of the two ten or twenty institutions with funding/assistance? (I can't afford the whole thing on its own.)
