importance of publications?

Hi everyone. Out of curiosity, how important are publications for getting into grad school? Specific to my case, I have one ATel (astronomer's telegram) put out in June, which is really more like an abstract than anything else. I also have a paper to be published hopefully late this month of in jan (later than the app deadlines though) and a thesis, again next semester. I'm curious if on the apps i can say "Paper to be submitted for publication" where they want papers written, etc. anyone know if i can put stuff that will be published? or should i just send it in with supplementary materials some schools accept after the deadline? thanks!
