The usual newbie needs help post..

A photo of Jabur Jabur
Hello everyone,
My name is Noor Jabur and graduating from university of Arkansas (ranked in the mid 100s) this December and majoring in Telecommunication Systems Engineering. I already applied to McMaster university for Masters in ECE because I heard they have a very good RF engineering program but to be on the safe side I'm applying to other universities as back-up or the opposite. The list of universities I wish I can get accepted at:
1-UofT
2-McGill
3-UBC

My GPA is 3.96 and have done couple of researches, of course industrial experience as well. I really want to apply to these three universities for Masters in Engineering (ECE/Communications) but I'm afraid that I won't make it and fail (if I get accepted) because of the transition that I'm having from mid high hundreds to top 100 world wide. What do you guys recommend me to do? what are the chances I would get accepted? And if I do, would I make it through?

I'm also interested in universities in UK and applied to University of Nottingham.

I'm sure there are a lot of intelligent students in here who are attending these universities and I would appreciate any help :)
Thank you

I'm a grad student, doing an Aerospace Engineering MASc at U of T. I had a similar GPA and a limited amount of research experience. I think you have a good shot, especially since it seems U of T accepts a lot of international students.

Hey Ktel, Thank you very replying. So if I had a chance to get in, how hard would it be? is it very stressful? like "Geek" level lol because I'm not lol

Grad school is pretty rigorous and filled with "geeks". Look at your professors. That's an indication of the type of people you would encounter in grad school, more often than not. I have found my department to have a good social side too, however.
