Now I'm not a program director or anything but this is just my personal opinion. I feel like there is an over exaggeration of the importance of personality and interpersonal skills in matching. If they were so important would we see such high match rates for U.S Medical Students? People say that your scores and academic achievements get you interviews and your personality gets you the match but lets look at U.S students whose match rate is near 94%. Do 94% of U.S Students have such a great personality that they find it easy to match? Or is it because they attended U.S Medical school? Seems to me that the medical school and your board scores is what ultimately determines your outcome even if you had an excellent interview. The match rate for IMGs in Family Medicine who scored above 245 is near 85% while the match rate for IMGs in family medicine who scored near 210 is at 50%. Do people above 245 just seem to have such great interpersonal skills? It is kind of scary knowing that with low scores and a great personality you're chances are less than those with bad personalities and great board scores.
