Can I get admission into mediocre to decent US University with a 54% in MSC in CS?

I'm an Economics bachelor's, a three-year degree with 54%. I wasn't interested in Economics, hence my pathetic score.

Still, I started learning about the program after a while, and finally, after about a year I was able to land a job as a developer.

I currently have over 18 months of experience as a developer with a bunch of online certificates and some cool projects to show my knowledge in the domain. Can I get into universities like Ohio University, KSU, University of Illinois, Chicago, UMB or if I'm being too ambitious then ASU?

Online courses no university accepts, You have got domain knowledge and are working is a different thing. The universities you mentioned like UIC, UMBC are difficult to get in. Best option for you would be to go for MIS or ITM. The transition will be easy and getting admission also. CS is very highl... See more
