It is a common myth that brand name university degrees are better for employment. This may not be true. If you are doing MS in Rhode Island, you are attractive to Rhode Island companies and same is true for companies across various States, you study local and work local. Scores apart, you must also develop an academic statement (why you want to study further) and a career statement (what you will do with the new education). Apply to both public and private universities. The golden rule is apply apply apply until the acceptance letters start arriving.

Good Luck!

You can Do MS in US as long as you have financial means and a recognized degree.

GRE TESTs are also important but not everything -unlike in India

It is important to see which university you choose. Talk to seniors and see how are the placements - which companies come to the university - That should give you a good picture of what the university stands for.
