You should probably look at schools with a lot of oil company funding (which will be competitive) and unranked shcools (where funding will be competitive because there isn't as much funding available)

No one knows ScarletAmethyst, its hard to say. You certainly have a profile I think that could get into those schools (i'm not really sure how competitive they are really, I'd imagine they are relatively easier schools to get into) but funding is another story. The problem is that these schools arent the best funded, and international applicants can cost more than double to fund because you can never get instate tuition. 


I really think you should try and find some private schools with strong tectonics backgrounds, since it costs the same to fund everyone.
