    I am currently applying to schools and during my glide year I am working in a pediatrics research lab. As of yesterday I have submitted an abstract, in which I am the first author, regarding my research. I want to inform schools of this, what is the best way to go about this? Should I send them a copy of the abstract along with a cover letter detailing whom it was submitted to? If so, should the abstract be on any special type of paper (eg hospital/university stationary) or is normal printer paper appropriate?
    Anyone with experience I would appreciate your help. My PI is submitting one to Case along with a letter (since he's a faculty member there and it is where I am conducting my research), but I am concerned about how to go about submitting to the other schools I am applying to. I als have interviews on this coming Monday and Tuesday, should I just take copies of the abstract with me?

    I am currently in a similar situation and am also unsure how to handle it. I called a few schools and asked them what to do. They said that sending updates is totally fine. So, I guess we have nothing to loose by sending them additional information.

    Good luck to you!

    Definately take the abstract with you to the interviews. Take multiple copies, and if you get on the topic of your research during the interview give the interviewer a copy. I did this at my state school, and at the end of the interview he asked to keep the abstract. At another interview my research never really came up, so I left the abstracts in my portfolio. Did not hurt to bring them though!
    Good luck at your interviews.
