I am planning to apply for MS in Data Science/ML

I’m a production engineering BTech student at NIT Trichy with 8.31/10.0 but am planning to apply for MS in Data Science/ML. I have also taken a minor in CS with a good GPA but how much will my core production engineering grades and GPA matter especially for the top 10 universities in the US? Also, is having a US citizen positive or negative for someone who has studied in India? They might not be able to recognize Indian Universities as well as US accredited universities, is this a
problem? Also, how do i convert my GPA to a 4.0 scale?
