Hi Manas, although both the universities provide excellent educational programs, UC Berkeley is a top tier university with a world rank of 28 while the University of Texas, Dallas ranks among 500-510. Considering that Cyber Security broadly comes under the Computer Science department, the program ranking for this also differs for both the universities. The UC Berkley ranks 2nd for Cybersecurity worldwide and the University of Dallas, while still an amazing university, ranks 251-300. Looking at these rankings, I'd say that UC Berkley is a much better option for you to pursue MS in cybersecurity.

RE: SOP requirement
Your SOP is what makes or breaks your college application and as far as I know, SOP's are compulsory for college applications as they represent your ideas and will for applying for the college. But if you don't want to write your SOP you can ask your respective university if they offer an alternative option like a university interview. But mostly, one way or another, most universities ask you to write an SOP or an Essay. I personally, would recommend that you should write an SOP. Doing so will help you build your application profile and will increase your chances of getting accepted in the university of your choice. But still, if you feel like you don't want to write an SOP, make an inquiry with the university you want to apply to.

RE: Expenses for studying in USA?
Hey Zeeshan, Living expenses not only include accommodation but a lot more than that. The first expense which is the most important one is food expenses. If you know how to cook your food expense will not be as much as if you buy food from outside. Although it sounds minimal the food is the most important expense. Traveling expense - this expense is based on the place of your accommodation, if you live inside the campus then well and good but if your accommodation is far away then traveling expense occurs. Books and supplies and personal expenses are also major expenses apart from accommodation. These are the basic expenses that will occur but you should keep some amount of money aside for emergency purposes like medical expenses, communication expenses, etc.
RE: Minimum tuition fees for Canada?
The question you are asking is a highly subjective one. The minimum tuition fee depends on which course you opt for. An example of that being the fees for a Medical course and the fees for other masters courses vary greatly. The average tuition fees that you shall be expected to pay for is between 20,000 AUD to 36,000 AUD. While the tuition fees courses such as Medicine can range between 33,000 AUD to 43,000 AUD. Maybe if you could specify the course that you are interested in, we could help you further.
RE: TOEFL exam explanation?
The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a test set to quantify the fluency of a non-English native student at the English language. This test is important to get into the university of your choice abroad. The test is primarily divided into four parts- reading, listening, speaking and writing which is each worth 30 points. There is another similar test called the IELTS exam which you can also attempt instead of TOEFL. To understand how the TOEFL exam works and which of these two exams you should attempt, here is a blog that you could read(https://ischoolconnect.com/blog/choosing-between-ielts-toefl/)

RE: A mighty goof up while applying. Will i be able to get into a good college ?
In general, sending your TOEFL score afterwards is not the recommended way to apply to colleges. Some reject the application immediately while other colleges have been seen to have allowed students to do that based on their unofficial scores mentioned and make it official after the documents have been provided.
