Background: CS Undergrad applying to CS PhD Programs in the US.
I have multiple posters published along with some mid tier conference papers. Along with these, I have 6 journal papers under review. Few of them got rejected earlier and now I have re-submitted them with significant changes. They should be accepted this time but will take time and will not be "accepted" before I send out my applications.
Question 1: Is having too many paper's under-review a bad sign?
I do not want to show the panel that I am simply sending out papers to fill the CV.
- Every paper under review will be spoken about in my SOP and my LORs (all the journal papers are part of my various internships).
- I will be attaching the drafts on my CV for every paper so they can be viewed by the panel.
Question 2: Should I not mention about a few papers under review?
For all the programs I am applying for, the papers are highly relevant to the prof's works. Hence the question.
I am aware of similar questions on the forum but this question is quite specific to me and hence I am asking this as a separate question.
