I've worked really hard on this for the last two months so it would kill me to do that but if it negatively affects my application, I don't want to risk that either. Very confused about what to do, would really appreciate some guidance..
Research experience is less valuable if it has no publications, abstracts, presentation. Have you done hands-on rotations they are useful for the application where you can get strong experience and can get LOR.
