So I am really confused about which colleges to apply to and which not to. I am not able to eliminate colleges somehow and make a logical list. Following are the ones I am considering:
Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC LA, UIUC, ETH Zurich, NUS, Purdue, U Mich - Ann Arbor, CMU, UC San Diego, Cornell, Princeton, Georgia Tech, and UT Austin
I am open to other options as well if they are better than any of the others on the list. I aim to apply to at max 10 colleges. Also, following is my profile for your reference:
9.63/10 (IIT Kanpur), 328 (158 V 170 Q 4.0 AWA), TOEFL expecting 100+, Intern at Texas Instruments with Placement offer, One minor and one major project, a lot of extra currics (I know it doesn't matter much).
I am an undergrad looking for a graduate program in Electronics/Electrical (specifically VLSI/Microelectronics/Circuits)
