Hey Hi all,
I am applying for spring. I want to know how well placed I am. I think all you guys will be forth coming enough as you have been and help me with my endeavors.
a) My GRE is 1310 Q770 V540 AWA 5.0/6
b) TOEFL 297Max (expecting around 287 and 293)
c) I am from Osmania Univ India with 71% (that will be around 3.6 GPA)
d) I have one year research experience at GE-Power Controls in feild of Heat Transfer.
e) I have 1 patent filing
My sincere request is can anyone tell me with this profile whats the range of universities I can apply. I want to apply for Austin and Purdue. Do you think its a serious bet?
Thanks and regards

UTexas at Austin takes a high number of international students and your stats are right in their range - probably a good match for you. You might also take a look at Texas Tech and Texas A&M.
Purdue is also a good match for you. You will really need to sell your hands-on experience and patent. I'd suggest getting in touch with at least one professor in the department that most interests you via email and asking questions about the department, research, facilities, etc. In the process, of course, tie in your experience and ask how you would fit with the department. You never know, this might help personalize you enough to get your name moved up a notch with the admissions committee.
