Well....so much for me publishing anything.

Why do they have these things if they aren't supposed to help you at any point? Are they just for undergrads to use as fodder for their application to M.A./PhD programs?

If you happen to write something truly outstanding, and one of your profs tells you, 'This paper is truly outstanding, and you should try to get it published', then by all means go for it. But I wouldn't worry about publishing until you are about to enter the job market (i.e. 4-6 years into your PhD).
