I went to business school before medical school and we had entire courses devoted to preparing a resume that "jumps out" and ways to impress interviewers with the limited time you get in an interview. I gurantee the same type of thing will apply for residency interviews. I'm sure you've read articles about the same thing written by two different authors and realized that one author somehow was able to engage you much better than the other. Well the same thing goes for your CV and your personal statement. I'm just asking for people to reply if they found any creative ways to beef up the non-academic portion of their CV which ended up working in their favor, so if you don't have anything constructive to add to the conversation then don't reply to the thread

I chalked it up to people being different on web forums and concluded that there is no way in hell they actually interact with other adults in person the way they do on the internet. However, after meeting a few of these people at interviews and realizing that a few are my classmates, I stand corrected. I wonder if there is a section on the match outcomes that describes the match rate of people with various personality disorders.

I can't search "CV" because it is only 2 characters :-/How much undergrad stuff do we include? I guess Med school grades and Step 1 should be on the CV? and also any research projects, etc.Any help is appreciated!
