hi. I am new to this forum and found the discussions very helpful. I wanted to know is there any chance to get accepted into PHD English Programs at the top schools like Cornell, Brown, Upenn etcetera without a publication to your name? I am an International applicant. Scored 105 in the TOEFL. GRE 155 verbal 135 quantitative and 4 Analytical. I have been an A* student throughout my academic career and graduated with a disinction. My writing samples were alright, not as good as they could have been but pretty good nevertheless. The SOP was OK . The LOR`s were written by professors who taught me during my undergrad, but none of those professors are big names in the field or anything. I have a very strong record of Co-curriculars and all and a couple of conference presentations to my name. But I know how competitive the thing is. I am not sure why am I even ranting here. But I would appreciate your honest opinion folks , do I stand a chance?
