    Yes, they do. I overhead the admission representative at a college fair. He said abstracts are great.

    Keep in mind that the abstract will only impress a professor in your field, and it is unlikely that your abstract will be read by such a person as a part of the admissions process. It is more important to highlight the extent of your involvement in research, and how (or if) you would like to continue that involvement while in college. Good luck!

    Oh yes, of course they do. They want to know about you and what makes you you. If that includes an abstract, send it. Maybe no one in particular will read it, but what's the harm? Send it and include mention of any awards you may have earned with it.
