There is so much discussion on this forum about "fit" and personality playing into the rank lists, which I think is completely pointless. You guys are wasting your time. Let's face it, it's all about your step 1,2 scores and your class rank. Sure, there will be the occasional applicant who has high scores and a high class rank who will also be a bit awkward or weird- those guys can be picked out from a mile away and they'll be at the bottom of the rank list or may not even make it. Program directors know that it's hard for them to judge who is a good "fit" or who has a genuine personality after a 30 minute interview. They know that there will be jerks who will be able to fool them in the interview. So in the end, they're left with the scores and class rank. It's the most objective measure they have to compare applicant to applicant, regardless of quality of medical school or anything else. But of course, PDs are never going to openly admit that scores and class rank play almost a 100% role when making their rank lists- it's not politically correct and they know it. But they do it anyways.
