I'm looking for a program that has focus on machine learning while there are number of courses for data analysis. This interest led me to the list of schools above where the programs are a mix of CS, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence master's.

I also marked ambitious/moderate/safe next to the schools. 

Can anyone judge what are my chances for the schools above? My dream schools are JHU, NW and NYU.
