Can I send a co-authored paper?

I didn't do a thesis, so I have very few great writing samples to send. My best sample is a paper a friend and I submitted in grad school. Would programs look at me like I'm crazy if I submit this paper? I want to be ethical, and not pretend like I wrote the paper myself.

The best thing is to ask your programs directly. I believe that they do not accept co-authered papers, but I would ask anyway. Who knows, may be some of them do...

mention it on your resume. and SoP. once invited for interview, take the sample with you to give to the prof directly. prior to interview, your application materials (minus the sample) should suffice to make a good impression.
