please rate me for CARNEGIE and also if possible,give me suggestions for the universities i should apply for (keeping in mind that out of state tution is low or the university grants financial aid or scholarships to international universities,,,,but if the university is worth paying,i dont have any problem)

    Yes, the GPA is the only thing missing. Then and only then your rating will be assigned.

    baruch wouldnt be a problem at all. But comp sci. CMU, its going to be tough because your cr sat score it low. I would say low reach because youve worked for dell and microsoft

    Basically what OP said, your grades/ECs/math score are good, but your overall SAT is rather low (due to CR and W), so yeah low reach...

    CMU: Reach
