Hello Anand,

Here is probaby some good News for you that you can definitely apply to USA Universities with your 6.5 CGPA for the following two reasons:

a. Admission in most USA Universities is based on your overall profile and not just on your academics thou academic grades are important. 

b. Most universities have low weight age for academic grades again thou important for the simple reason that evaluation and system followed varies from country to country and hence cannot be easily compared.

So work on your GRE, and you other admission documents besides apply early to improve your admission chances.

All the best!

Warm regards,
