Well, Arun,
You are a bit late in the game, but if you write really fast, you can make it!
:)

First of all, I want to commend you on both your school choice and on your auto evaluation, which I think is pretty on the dot. So when you do apply, you wanna apply to at least one dream school, one safe school and maybe two in the middle (Not sure if you will have time for more, but if you can do it, by all means). So you are good there.


Gotta watch out for the TOEFL score though, although it's good, many schools might only accept scores that were taken within the last two years, so make sure you know that BEFORE you apply!!!

And good luck to you.
