Which one is better research or externship to put in your CV to get a better match?

Of course having both of them is great but often there's no time to do both and we have to choose one of them to boost our ERAS application for the next match

Some people say research is the most important distinguishing point in the CV, while other say that a USCE is mandatory for IMGs before being able to match.

What do you think!
