I'm not from your field but most of my friends are so I can give you a very brief opinion:

Most importantly: Apply more in the 10-20 field than 10-1.

Your GRE and percentage doesn't matter as much as your project work... which is good, but not too competitive for the top 10s. A friend of mine who built and competed autonomous robots all over India (including winning IIT techfest) only managed to crack one top 10 school. (#10 infact!)

You need to make a REALLY coherent and genuine SOP. This is especially impt because your pool of competitors (indian/asian engineers) is totally saturated with similar profiles. I've noticed that its a convincing and well written SOP that puts an application over the top. Boasting about your projects will not be as helpful as talking about them detachedly and showing how graduate school is the logical next step.

Good luck!! and dont worry about your percentage, i don't think it will hold you back.
