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?
