My Revised GRE score is 307/340 (Quant-163, Verbal-144) which is 1150/1600 in old pattern(Quant-780, Verbal-370) and TOEFL score is 74/120 (will be retaking shortly). I will be applying to some selected universities shorlty and want to know more about the universities in order to choose the better one. I'm doing R&D for selecting universities and i need ur help in giving me some better knowledge about University of Buffalo, State University of New York .

    I would like to briefly provide my profile to evaluate and give some advice/suggestions:

    I would be very much thankful to you, if you could tell me for my profile whether do i stand a chance of getting admission in University of Buffalo, State University of New York . Please do help me about this because i have only 5 universities to apply and if i get rejected from all then i will be in a very big problem.

    Tuition Fee per sem?
    How good is Research going in VLSI Design?
    How are the Placements (Packages) after MS. Is it easy to get a good job after MS or is there a heavy completion and difficult to find a job?
    How is the campus, classrooms, labs and other facilites in the campus?
    How easy is it to find a part time job (off campus or oncampus)?
    How is the funding scenario? Do i stand a chance with my profile to get any fee waiver/TA/RA?
    How is the climate around the year?

    After doing some R & D, found that i have chances of getting in University of Buffalo, State University of New York and would like to confirm it from you so that i can know more about my chances of getting an admit and also get more authentic knowledge about University of Buffalo, State University of New York . Finally and most importantly i would like to admit that my main goal/motive for doing MS is to make Good amount of money, so i want to know whether doing VLSI Design in University of Buffalo, State University of New York will get me a good job(Good Package).
