Does a research poster count as a research abstract? Answered
Columbia University asked "Have you completed research with a faculty member or mentor in an academic discipline such as science, engineering or other academic interests (e.g., humanities, social sciences or languages)?" and I did so I clicked yes. It then asked me for the one page research abstract but I don't have that lengthy of a research abstract. The research that I have done with a professor is compiled into a research poster rather than a paper. What should I do?

You have to answer the prompt.
If you do not have a 1-page research abstract, then I would not submit a picture of a poster instead.
What I would do is either go back and unselect "YES".
Or I would ask the Professor if I could write a 1 page abstract about the research I did and submit that after he/she/they approved the piece.
Hope that was clear and helpful.
