Univ Shortlisting Dilemma- MS Fall 23

How do universities assess a candidate who has a backlog(cleared) due to medical reasons but has a good cgpa(around 8.5) from an old NIT (top 30)? Will top unis consider them if they have a genuine reason and they can explain the same in their SOP or will they immediately reject the application due to history of backlogs(1).

IELTS : 8

You have ONE backlog, it's a NON ISSUE. It happens for various reasons. You're profile is great you can target good universities. For ECE you can try Gatech, Purdue, Virginia tech, UCSD, NCSU, TAMU college station, Stony Brook Upen.,UW Madison etc. See more

If ur backlog is cleared, it doesn’t matter to them why and how it happened usually.
