Abstracts of non published papers i.e. which are in press

Its a must

Actually, a better thing to do is to find out what kind of mechanism the college has with regards to published papers.
E.g. UTA CS has an explicit link where you can upload upto three papers. IUB CS requests that you send them (The School of Informatics and not the graduate school) published material/code etc. SUNY SB explicitly forbids (The woman in charge actually threatened me!) any material apart from the usual stuff.

General Advice To Applicants:

1. Don't send crap unnecessarily. Tenth, twelfth marksheets, price winning certificates in arbit colleges all don't matter at all. Also please note that even if you plan to send all this stuff, don't send it to the graduate school (Their only job is to review your mark sheets and check if you have crossed the necessary cut offs), send it to your specific department.

2. Some colleges ask that you send two transcripts. Others don't have an issue if you send only one. Find out clearly which system exists and send accordingly.

3. If you have relatives/ friends in the u.s. Seal each individual packet separately mentioning your Indian Address and the School's address. Put all these in one big packet and send it to them. This will work out to be incredibly cheap for you.

4. Some colleges ask you to separately send envelopes to the Graduate School and the Department. E.g. UMN., UT, Austin. However most of these colleges are nice enough to let you package the envelop to be sent to the department inside the graduate school envelop. After they receive the graduate school envelop, they send it for free via the internal mail delivery service.

5. Send a photocopy of your GRE and TOEFL scores along with the packet. This is very important. ETS being as screwed up as it is, occasionally forgets to send scores to Universities. Universities also mess up when they forget to receive your scores. Although 80% of the time, the photocopy won't be used instead, it can help you buy time if the deadline has already passed.

True for most universities, like UT Austin and all. UT CS in fact asks you to send the Grad School packet also to them and they would forward it to the Grad School. But some schools like Virginia Tech CS, University of Florida CS(in fact Wendy, the grad coord has a post on her blog saying why send them separately) insist that you send the packets separately to be sure your application is processed in time. So make sure you univ is fine with it, before combining packets.

5. Send a photocopy of your GRE and TOEFL scores along with the packet. This is very important. ETS being as screwed up as it is, occasionally forgets to send scores to Universities. Universities also mess up when they forget to receive your scores. Although 80% of the time, the photocopy won't be used instead, it can help you buy time if the deadline has already passed.
Very important as TDE said, Cornell processed my application with the xerox copy as ETS had not sent my score about 1.5 months after I had reported it. I had to call ETS and talk to them, and they sent another copy.

Please do not email me for Cornell related queries, ask them on the Cornell thread. If you do mail me, I may not reply. I am currently very busy, if I do not reply to PMs, please wait for a few days.
