Hi Jency, its good to see that you are taking steps on study abroad process from your 2nd year itself... I suggest you to first go through the study guide on "Study in USA" and watch our expert's tips for 'Study in USA' which will provide you a clear picture on study in USA process including scholarships and visa.. And recommend you to review the Universities by downloading their prospectuses.

Hi jency , If you want to do MS in Computer Science in USA  start preparing for GRE exams when you are in the 3rd year. If you want to get in to good Universities, look for a score of 300 plus and if you are looking for scholarships aim at 320 plus. Also make sure you maintain a good first class degree and try and avoid failures in your UG. If you are lookig for schoalrships, try and score 8.0 or 80% in in UG. Also prepare for TOEFL and in general the minimum reuqirement is about 80 plus out of a total of 120. 

For admissions in good Universities start applying when you are in your 7th semester or 1 year before the start of the course in USA. Most Universities will take 3 to 4 months to confirm your admission. You can apply for visa once you get your provicinal degree  and you are allowed to file for visa 120 days before the start of the program. In USA, there are 3 intakes, Fall, Spring and Summer. Apply for the appropriate season well in advance. You can use Uniguru's online application service (Uniform) to apply to the Universities..

All the best
