Hi. Im doing my final year of engineering (B.Tech, Information Technology) currently and im looking to do a masters degree in HCI in the US (Fall 2014). Ive shortlisted a few universities but im not too sure on how to go about choosing which ones to apply for. I would like to be a user interface designer / usability engineer. Im a pretty average student. It would really be nice if anyone could suggest some universities and what exactly i should take into account while shortlisting them.
Plus im an international level table tennis player and was wondering if that would help out in any way in the admissions process.
