Thanx Raza ,but i want to apply to at least 10 -12 universities, so can u suggest some where i will have a fairly good chance of an admit or if possible some aid

well you can take a look at US news rankings...they also have ranked departments by fields AI, Systems etc.

for aid you have to apply early, if you are an international student you can apply for scholarships e.g. Fulbright etc

if you get your application right you can get into a Top 15 school

good luck
