Didn't necessarily "forget" to include the research, but opted to not put it in for the following reasons:
1) 3rd author on a poster presented at a research conference - reason for not including: did not attend conference, and upon googling, the poster does not come up anywhere but the program for the conference does
2) 1st author abstract presentation at international cell symposium on cytoprotection (in St. Petersburg, Russia) - reason for not including: it was during high school, the summer after grade 11

But now I'm second-guessing my reasoning and wondering if these are things I should have included?? Is it worth attempting to add them to my AMCAS? (I haven't been verified yet).

Once you submit you can't change your Activities entries, whether or not you have been verified. Your recourse would be to withdraw the entire application, but then you'd be barred from applying again until June 2017. It's not worth it.

Some Secondaries might give you a chance to add the information though.

@Catalystik thank you for the info! I'll watch out for any opportunities in secondaries to add those.
