Any advice on how to get into UPenn Annenberg (PhD)?

More publications will never hurt you. Unless you have been publishing for ten years and admissions would be confused as to why you're applying to a Ph.D.

I don't know if Annenberg "East" publishes average GRE/GPA, but Annenberg "West" does.

Naptown, I got in last year for a comm doctoral program at a strong school. I'd suggest getting strong, specific recommendations from professors that the admissions committee members know. Accent your potential for success in their program. Mention a few areas of research that would fit with current professors. Don't raise weak areas in your SOP! I think there's a temptation to "explain" your application in a way that makes sense to you. For instance, say you bombed stats 101 in undergrad. Don't mention it. They might never look through your undergrad transcript to find out. Have a history of completing projects, particularly those that lead to publications.
