    Hello Prathyusha,

    Well your choice to apply to Cleveland State University is fine. But applying to a single University would not justify with your admission chances.

    Another point of concern is your IELTS score. This is because most of the Universities abroad have their IELTS score requirement of at least 6.5. Universities may give you a conditional admission offer till the time you meet this admission requirement.

    On the other hand your academic scores are very good. Thus on a whole you need to consider retake your IELTS for better admission as well as Visa chances.

    As far as choice of Universities is concerned, we can suggest you a couple of more Universities for this purpose.

    Because you have not mentioned the program you are applying for, suggesting Universities appropriate for your program is a little difficult but you can have a fair idea about the Universities that collaborate with us here:

    College Finder

    In order to get in touch with our counseling team you can call us on toll free number 1800-420-3039. Else you can reach me as well at ankita.arora@learnhub.com

    We would be happy to assist you in selecting Universities further as well processing your applications for the same.

    Hope to hear from you soon!
