Im currently a 3rd year so I have yet to apply on ERAS or VSAS but a 4th year told me and a few friends about pictures being part of the application process. I personally don't see the big deal but i'm a dude, one of the girls I know, who is pretty smokin', was hesitant about looking too dolled up in her pic, said she would go for the plain jane look. She think being girly or pretty would work against her, not being taken seriously enough. I think it would work in her favor lol but I'm wondering what SDNs opinions on this matter is. Do residencies and residents give bonus points for looks during applications or interviews. I heard residents usually take out the interviewees to dinner or drinks to hang and I don't see how being too attractive could hurt in these situations. Anyway just wanted to hear your opinions, cheers!
