If you graduated from Boğaziçi, AUB, or AUC, maybe Cairo University and LAU, committees will have an idea of the background you're coming from. If you're not from one of those schools, it may be a bit harder, but you could probably do fine in the 20-60 range. GRE scores are a bit low, but everything else looks fine. Of course, how much the publications matter depend on what journals, etc.

Thank you. Very useful info dear mcm1. I'll consider it but I think my graduate school is one of the best in the MENA, at least by some of the rankings it is not lower than you mention.
