My CV is pretty pitiful and I was wondering if I should include some undergrad research projects (without pubs or poster) and that I was a teaching assistant in college for a 400 level physiology class. Otherwise I only have one research project that I am currently working on, but its a pretty simple chart review with radiology correlation. My application is pretty solid otherwise. All honors 1st and 2nd year; Got Virchow Prize for highest path score during second year. 3rd year: Honors in Peds, OBGYN, Surg; High Passed the rest Step 1: 256 Step 2: 264 Should get really good LORs from 3 pathologists and 1 IM physician. Without substantial research, will I get interviews at some of the top research places like UCSF, Hopkins, ect..? I am interested in research and really considering academics (definitely would if it weren't for my 200K+ debt), but I feel my lack of research is going to hurt me.
