Thanks for the feedback.

You have a competitive profile for the schools on your list, and you are smart to try to do your homework while you are in the US. If you can, visit the schools, in addition to speaking to them. Also, when you speak to them, make sure your questions don't ask about information easily available on their web site. Review the website first.

My company, Accepted.com, would be happy to review and edit your resume, but we must charge to review and edit a resume. If you follow the link, you will find details about the service and prices.

Good luck!

Hi... thanks for your spontaneous reply ... But I am afraid my question is not fully answered. Should I speak to admission coordinator or professors regarding my admisision/aid.

can you suggest me some other univs for which I may get a sure admit...

Whan speaking to them is it alright if I insist on Assistantship.

Sorry about that.

You should speak to the admissions office, unless you have a specific reason to contact a professor. The admissions office also handles aid issues. You can't "insist" on an assistantship, but you can certainly express interest in or ask how does one go about qualifying for a TA position.

Assuming you want to stay in IT, also consider Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. While I can't guarantee your acceptance, you would be highly competitive at both these schools

Good luck!
