Background: CS Undergraduate applying to CS PhD (USA)
I am involved in a review paper as a 2nd author. The review paper is of a very high quality and most likely will get accepted in a journal with a high impact factor. There will be 2 other authors who are both Co P.I. s of the project.
Question: Does that hold any weightage in front of a PhD Admit Panel?
Note: The paper length is around 30 double columned pages so ample research is covered and future prospects are suggested in depth.
