My class ten percentage was 96.4%,in 9th and 11th I got more than 80but less than 85. I look forward to study abroad in USA in a good college and get a outstanding placement. I got 1490 in SAT. I will also take SAT subjects. I am going in with CS50 by Harvard these months and will publish an mobile application on play store to this year.

Pls suggest any improvement in my profile as well.

I wish to persue a Computer Science degree.

Now my problem is can anyone give me a list suitable for according to the information above and below?I depend totally upon education loan from Indian Banks one question is that also what is the amount of loan I'll receive and one question is that also is there any international loan service which can provide me with financial aisistance . My parents can only manage to pay an extra of 4.5 lakhs INR. I want to know that the Universities you suggest me how will they financially aid me and how can I persue my plan for its financial aid and also will that University admit me and supposing I get a 25000 lakh INR of loan. Plz do suggest Universities which will give me a good career. Plz do give your review on full sail University's computer science course and future placements. While suggesting plz consider ranking and placements also.
