I'm a 3rd year computer science undergrad in a top 20 (read 10-20) applying to graduate school. Because I simply have less years in college, the papers I'm writing just don't have enough time until they come out. For reference, I am in 2 of the top ~6 CS labs in the school. One of them has a paper coming out soon, although it'll be close and the other has a paper coming out next summer.
Given that I've only been in school for 2.25 years right now and I started in these labs about 0.75 years ago, I think this is fairly reasonable. Will this be taken into account on graduate school admissions or does the committee not care? If the former, should I mention it somehow in my SoP?
