  1. Hello Everyone, Present I am currently working as a Full Stack developer for a technology company. I have had hands on experience with recent .Net(MVC, WebAPI) and front end frameworks(AngularJS/Angular2/4/5). I started working with a startup right after my under-grad and have been with them for 3.5 years now. I got promoted from Software Engineer to Sr. Software Engineer and currently lead a team of 15 people on several projects. Simultaneously, I work for an international client (Director of Technology) on building their complex internal use software, for which I have designed the architecture, take requirements(Agile), develop and deploy its releases. I have a stack overflow reputation of ~4K. I am in top 5% users in AngularJs and top 20% in c# and always #SOreadytohelp. Past I graduated from Manipal University, Karantaka after completing my BE in computer science. I have had a tough time in my college as I could manage a mere 5.73/10 cgpa with over 15 backlogs. I self taught myself different languages(c#, javascript, python, PHP, etc..) and worked on small and enterprise projects when i entered the real world. Future Now, I believe I have gained enough knowledge that I could have from my current role and wish to explore further on my potential by doing masters in either MIS/DataScience/ML/AI. Another reason is that I really wish to taste proper education by studying in a good school. GRE/TOEFL I would be giving the standardized tests by end of August and very certain to score 320-323 in GRE and 105-107 in TOEFL (got this data by analyzing mock tests I have given). LOR I can manage 4 recommendations 1 from either my java or maths professor in college. 1 from my ex-manager who recently quit. 1 from the CEO of my current company with whom I have worked on php projects. 1 from the client based in USA for whom I have worked closely in developing internal software. SOP I believe that I can write a convincing statement about my potential to work for the program, defend my low grades and other relevant things. Funding I have gathered some to self-fund my tuition fees and rest would be a bank loan depending on the tuition cost (15K-25K per annum) Need clarification on the below queries : What if I could not manage a LOR from any of my professors since its been 4 years now, would a professor LOR really be required? How do I go about shortlisting universities(Ambi, Mod, Safe) which are not GPA centric yet can offer competitive computer science programs? Which universities of Canada can offer similar programs with my profile? What are my chances of scholarship in these universities? Are my chances better if i apply early to these programs?
