    Hey SDNers,

    I am a little confused about science abstracts. To put this on your resume/application does this need to be published? For example, I just got my name on an abstract but it is for a national meeting that will be in april (i will be presenting a poster). Also I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this but would the adcom people favor these types of things in the following order:

    1. published journal article
    2. poster
    3.presenting at national meeting
    4. abstracts

    Thanks for your feedback

    i always thought abstracts were #2. what do i know though. for amcas i just had one paragraph and mentioned in passing that i had a few publications. thought it was pretty stupid to write a new "experience" for the same job.

    I think that the order is

    1. Published Article
    2. Everything Else presented
    3. Research conducted but not presented or presented without your name.

    I don't think that there is really any difference in the adcom's eyes between anything that is not a published article.
