There are some specific departments I'm interested in, however, given that they are top in the world, I'm not sure if my profile is good enough for me to get in there. I'd appreciate it if you could provide some reviews or suggestions on where I should apply. And do you think I have some chances of getting in the top department given my 0 research/publication?
