my chance for EECS grad school, I need some advice
Hi, I am here to ask whether I can compete for a place at EECS or not. Things about me:
Interests: Artificial Intelligence, Image processing, Machine Learning
Education: Tokyo Univerisity, 3rd year
Major: Robotics (official name of my falcuty is Mechano-Informatics)
GPA: 3.78/4.0 (will not change much)
Honors: Vietnamese Mathematics Olympiad 2007, 3rd place ( and many more local math contests prizes, and one physics one)
Work Experience: 2 month internship at Microsoft Japan (start on 2012/08/01)
TOEFL: I will take it at the end of this year, and I really hope I can reach 100/120 points
Computer skills: Master in C++, Java; others: C#, Lisp, Matlab; API: Opengl, OpenCV
Research experience: I am not having any right now, but I will enter laboratory and do research there during my senior year.
Something else: Solid background in Maths and CS(I have taken as many as possible maths classes, advanced or not, and I got A in all). Most of classes which I got B grade are not related to my major (Japanese classes, biology class...).
MIT is truly my dream, I really want to be there. I want to know if I am likely to be a competive candiate and please, give me some advice what to do next.
Do I have to improve my GPAs? The best I can get is 3.83 ( if I get A in all classes from now on). Is there any different between 3.83 and 3.78? I asked this question because I would be so so hard to reach that maximum GPAs, while I can easily maintain 3.75-3.8 GPAs)
Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
