I think that you are aiming at reasonable schools. I suggest adding schools like UC Davis, Rice and UC Riverside to your list. I cannot recommend more without additional information like your research interests. With regards to your application, I think your Master GPA will be a negative point to the admission committee because it shows a downward trend from your undergrad and the average GPA for Master is around 3.8 if I remember correctly. This is more so for you because you are an international students, and the competition among us is real. IMO, I think top-30 schools in the US News ranking are reaches for you, but you can try a few schools in the top 40. Schools at the level of Florida State and UFL are reasonable, but you may want to add some lower-ranked schools like UC Riverside as safety choices. You have a good undergrad GPA, so I am pretty sure you will get in somewhere if you spread your applications widely.

Thank you so much.

 Do you have any suggestion on lower-ranked school?
