I put my lab experience as most meaningful and used the space to talk about why. Why would you waste that space citing your pub? I cited my pub in a publication entry and wrote what my contribution was below it. I had 0 hours as it overlapped with my research experience which was most meaningful.Should I mark the publication or the research experience as MME?
Is there anything wrong with citing it all within Research/Lab and just putting the publication citation within the experience description box and describing the details under MME description? I'm just afraid the publication will be overlooked if don't cite it as MME as one school I interviwed at for example only provided interviewers with the MME. On the other hand, I also think it could be kinda weird if I describe the pub in the MME research experience but also have a separate entry just for a citation.
If it was meaningful yes, if it wasnt most meaningful, then no. No adcom will care or somehow give you brownie points for making a certain kind/type of activity most meaningful. In reading an application, lacking sincerity, forced writing to make it seem something it isnt really can get you put in the reject pileI put my lab experience as most meaningful and used the space to talk about why.

Just to add, this is for a published or accepted paper that you can cite. If you have research with a paper that is only in prep or submitted, that is a line to add to the research activity as you wont have a publication activityYou should have two entries for this: one for your research experience and another for your publication.
