What are my chances at these schools? MS BioE/BME


Recommended Posts

Looking for inputs on my profile and whether it matches with the school list; I'm really lost as to how ambitious I should be... 

So basically, what are my chances at the schools I'm applying to? Specifically Northeastern.

Undergrad Institution: University of Alabama at Birmingham (Good Med School, below average engineering)
Major(s): Mechanical Engineering
Minor(s): NA
GPA in Major: Not sure but slightly above overall GPA
Overall GPA: 3.52
Position in Class: I'd estimate top 20% of class
Type of Student: Hispanic/Middle Eastern Male, Citizen

GRE Scores (revised/old version):
Q: 162 (81%)
V: 154 (65%)
W: 4.0 (60%)

Research Experience: Conference paper in Mechanical Engineering, Started Bio-printing project with Materials Engineering Lab in August (won't have paper by application deadline, but will get some lab experience).

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: 3 Dean's List, 1 President's List

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: TA for 1 year in a lower-level engineering class, 2 manufacturing engineering internships,

*Should I include these in my resume: Co-owner of a restaurant, Youth group leader

Applying to Where: 
Northeastern University - Bioengineering - Biomedical Devices

Worcester Polytechnic Institute - Biomedical Engineering - Tissue Mechanics and Mechanobiology

Tufts University - Bioengineering - Biomechanical Devices

Dartmouth University - Engineering Sciences - Biomedical Devices

University of Connecticutt - Biomedical Engineering - Biomechanics

University of Alabama at Birmingham - Biomedical Engineering - Biomedical Devices

Stevens Institute of Technology - Biomedical Engineering - Bioinstrumentation

I'm thinking of adding one more 'safe' school, what's y'alls opinion on that?

Comments: My first-choice school is by far Northeastern. Can anyone tell me if I'm a good candidate for the M.S. Bioengineering Program over there?
