I am gonna mention my profile below in this mail. Please help me evaluate it and suggest on the schools where I have the greatest chance to get in. I hope you all will help me out.
Undergrad Institution: One of top 10 technology and science institutes, India.
[b]GPA in Major:8.8/10
[b]Length of Degree:5
[b]Position in Class:near top
[b]Type of Student:Domestic
[b]GRE Scores (revised/old version):Haven't given my GRE. But I think I can surely manage above 325/340
-Summer Intern at the CENPA, University of Washington. Worked on the HALO experiment and carried out related simulations using GEANT4. Results may get published in an undergraduate journal.
-Did a study-oriented project(SOP) on "Magnetohydrodynamics and its applications to solar flares". Carried out simulations again for the same project. Went to some research institute to read further on the same topic.
-Currently doing a SOP on the problem of "Random Walks".
-Completed physics project lab(PPL) elective and simulated "Non-Linear Triple Pendulum" and studied its behavior.
-Carried out numerous other simulations as part of other courses.
-Will be going for a 6 months-1 year undergraduate thesis during my 5th year.
-(Irrelevant) 2-month summer intern at TCOE, India where I worked on "Telecom Security and Common Criteria Certification".
-Receiving INSPIRE Scholarship sponsored by DST, Govt. of India.
-Was selected for the Indian Academy of Sciences (IAS) fellowship but was unable to attend it.

[b]Pertinent Activities or Jobs:
-Lab PA for the course "Non-Linear Dynamics and Chaos".
-PA for the course "Classical Mechanics".
[b]Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help:
-Worked for 1 year in the "Depart of Journalism and Media Affairs" at my school.
-Worked for 2 other departments but for a brief period of time.
-Volunteer for "SERC Prep. School in HEP" organized at my school.
-Volunteer for some event by "Indian Association of Physics Teachers" (IAPT)
-Won a competition at tech-fest of my school.
