Which ones are safe, moderate and ambitious universities?


Recommended Posts

I have a GRE score of 320 (166Q and 154V) and I am giving my TOEFL this weekend. I am a computer science undergrad from a university that is ranked among the top 15 in India (College of Engineering, Guindy, Anna University). I have a research internship at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore where I worked under the chairman of the CS department. I have a CGPA of 9.03/10. Here are the universities I am planning to apply. It would be great if anyone points out which of these are safe, moderate and ambitious. I have TCS as my field of interest and I would like to pursue a PhD. I am 7th in my class (of 63). Assume that I get a strong recommendation letter and I write a good SOP.
