what are my chances for masters

errrNoiseerrrNoise 3 replies2 threads New Member

i posted once in the what are my chances forum but got no replies. just wonderin if anyone has any idea of how the competition is for master programs. computer science to be specific. im gonna apply for fall 09 admission and im an international student from sweden.

swedish citizen
gpa: 3.5-3.6 (unweighted and roughly converted from european grade standard)
gre: havent done this yet. math shouldnt be a problem but im not sure about the rest bein from sweden and everything.
bachelors of computer science at royal institute of technology in stockholm, sweden (the school is considered good and is probably considered better than any avarage us bachelor degree)

no extra carriculars or anything since ill be graduatin right before im goin for a masters and the school is pretty time consuming as it is (50 hours/week).

the junior and senior years will be pretty much all a+'s and its only the first year that i got c's and b's.

any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
