  3. Hi Everyone, This is my first post here, hoping for some help. Need to know my chances to get into these universities. UBC Canada [MS in Data Science] - My Dream University SFU Canada [MS in BigData] - Second Rutgers USA [MS in Data Science] Living in NJ, so in my list. Waterloo Canada [MMath Computer Science] - Can ditch others If I get this Now here is my BackGround: I have studied in India, now living in USA for sometime. Undergrad:74.8% BCA (HNBGU University India) 3 years Degree Grad: 6 CGPA MS in SoftwareEngineering [BITS Pilani] {Work Integrated} Work Experience: 70 Months, Developer in DataMining Projects for European banking Clients [Big Banks] GRE: 302 [Q-158, V-144, AWA- not yet received] , Toefl: 98 [R-20, L-27, S-26, W-25] (I need 2 more in reading section for UBC) LOR : Strong (Yet Only from my managers, no academic contacts) So now what do you think, how much potential my profile has for such universities.

This system uses solar energy, which is a renewable source of energy, to produce electricity, which is then provided to our “smart homeâ€. Thus, we are producing electricity for our “smart homes†with the help of a renewable source of energy, thereby, saving the nuclear and fossil fuels, which are non-renewable sources of energy. By the use of above concept, we can turn a normal city, to a smart city and save nation’s nonrenewable resources by large percentage improving our country’s economy. Also proportion of pollution content will be reduced by much large amount thus minimizing global issues of Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming and Climatic Changes. 3)Fractional Frequency Transmission Description: The methodology behind fractional frequency transmission uses a reduced frequency level for the transmission of the power. The frequency of the transmission is reduced to one third the original value i.e. 50/3 Hz. Now at the generating end, once the voltage level is stepped up by using a transformer there is a cyclo-converter system which is placed next to the transformer. The power then reaches to the cyclo-converter where the frequency is reduced to 50/3 Hz. The power at the output of the cyclo-converter is fed to the transmission line. The power signal then reaches to the receiving end where it again undergo a frequency conversion and the frequency of the power is stepped up to 50 Hz so as to make it usable for the transformer which is designed to work on 50 Hz. This technique reduces the electrical length of the ac power line, and thus, its transmission capability can be increased several fold. Please provide valuable suggestions. list- 1.TAMU 2.North Carolina State University 3.University of Wisconsin-Madison 4.University of Minnesota Twin cities(UMNTC) 5.VIRGINIA TECH 6.Michigan Tech 7.Arizona State University 8.Iowa State University 9.Ohio State University 10.Univ of Colorado boulder 11.University of Texas at Austin 12.University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 13.Georgia Institute of technology 14.University of Massachusetts--Amherst 15.
