Is publishing a research Review Paper in a journal as good as being authored on research publication? I was just wondering I guess the mindset of and AdCom for this type of publication.

For the review paper, you didn't have to do any actual science right? You need to read the guy's paper and summarize it. I am assuming it would carry less weight than a published paper.

It's still a publication. Any publication will put you into the top 10% of the school's applicants, research-wise.

Out of curiosity, how are you writing a review article? Usually they're an invite-only sort or deal, most commonly with two authors: the PI, and a senior grad student or post-doc.

Also, it counts. How much weight it carries will depend on the subject and journal, but good work.
