I know it can be a bit difficult to figure out if you are eligible to apply for a certain university/country, considering you have some backlogs.  You can look at a list of universities with a relatively high acceptance rate like - 

1. University of Illinois

2. Arizona State University

3. University of Delaware

4. Michigan State University

5. Texas A&M University

While this is just a general list, you can definitely get more universities that have a higher acceptance rate.

What you also need to keep in mind is that these universities have various other judging parameters like extracurricular achievements, work experience, entrance exam scores etc. which help them figure out if you are the right fit for their university. I know that the bachelor grade requirement is also set but if you have all these other factors in your profile, it would surely give you an edge.

Why don't you tell me more about your profile? Maybe then I would be able to check if your overall profile matches the requirements of these universities or any other universities that you wish to target for that matter.

 Backlogs in your undergraduate program can indeed pose a hurdle when applying for an MS degree abroad, but they don't necessarily disqualify you. Many international universities understand that a variety of factors can influence undergraduate performance and are willing to consider applicants who have shown significant improvement over time or have excelled in other areas.

To enhance your application:

  • Focus on your GRE/GMAT scores: Achieving high scores can help mitigate concerns regarding your academic history.
  • Prepare a strong Statement of Purpose (SOP): Use your SOP to address your backlogs candidly. Explain what led to those backlogs and more importantly, how you overcame them, what you learned, and how you have grown academically and personally since then.
  • Get excellent Letters of Recommendation (LORs): Letters from faculty who can vouch for your academic recovery and your potential as a graduate student can be very influential.
  • Highlight relevant work experience and projects: Practical experience related to your field of study can significantly strengthen your application by demonstrating your skills and commitment to your field.
  • Consider pathway programs: Some universities offer pathway or foundation programs that can help bridge the gap and prepare you for the full master's program.

In summary, while backlogs are a setback, they are not insurmountable if you strategically prepare and present your application to highlight your strengths and improvements.
