Bryant, Thanks for your input. About the other part of my question, can you suggest me some colleges in Europe where I will stand a good chance of acceptance?

Hey Nitya, Our scores are pretty close! Did you finalize the schools to apply? I submitted informal assessment to Cranfield and Cass and they both said the same thing - try next year. Wanna know what you're doing about applying for this year....

Yeah, you pick schools before you see the score. I think that's illogical but that's how it is.
Yes, you can send the scores later to more schools but you have to pay extra.

Hey! Congrats on a very good score. Obviously, you're very well versed in English but am somewhat bothered by your use of the word "logarithm" in place of "algorithm". And you've done it twice; so, it's not a typo! I just think someone with a 700 ought to know the difference. :-) Peace!
