What does the admission committee look for in a prospective MS student?

Depends on university. Mid tier universities practically accept anybody because they are getting money (as tuition fees) without increasing the number of classes (which have to be taught to fewer students as well). As long as you have decent GPA and GRE score, you should get selected, but don't expect to get funding in MS. Very few students get funding for MS.

Stanford, MIT etc are more selective.
