Stay in the interview mode the whole time. People are watching you the whole time even while you are not in the interview.
What did you do in your four years of medical school that you found to be the most helpful during the CaRMS process?
I think successfully matching to general surgery requires a combination of networking extensively with general surgeons from my school, maxing out electives in general surgery, and participating in general surgery research during my spare time and summer. Being an excellent student, showing up on time, being pleasant etc. also very important.
