Becoming a competitive candidate for EM?

What sorts of things make you more competitive for EM? Is research really the only thing for CARMS?

No clue. I'm only in second year. Research may only be a tick box on the application but likely won't be the deciding factor.

Supposedly it all comes down to how much people like you/if you're a good fit for the program, if you work well with others, demonstrate interest in the specialty, perform well on electives and get your name known in good ways by the people doing residency selection. Having a good interview also probably helps.
