Make sure to comb through your PS and edit out any hints of pretension.

(Published my undergrad thesis, too, but I didn't go to a supercool Ivy/equivalent, fwiw).

Not sure that will be possible for OP.

you do have to sell yourself in your PS tho. I mean I bet most of them come off as at least marginally pretentious because you are trying to show off (albeit indirectly) what YOU have done and why YOU are qualified. So the fine line between acceptable pretension for the purposes of illuminating your candidacy and unacceptable pretension because you're actually just a dick can be tough to navigate
