Profile Evaluation

I want to apply for GRE waved universities.
What universities are good for my profile.

Target - Northeastern University. (Computer Science)

Work Experience - 30 Months (System engineer at TCS)
Education - BTech in Information Technology from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar technological University,
CGPA - 6.13/10
backlogs - 7
Research papers - 2 (1 in ML and 1 in AI)

My Academic profile is not that strong, But I guess work experience and STRONG SOP and LOR will help me to get into universities.

Should I take GRE as well?
