Help No Idea how to get ready for this year match application

Hi, I am going to apply this year for residency. I have no idea where to start with and what to do. For now I only have ECFMG Certificate with me and documents from my college.

I would also like to ask about LORs. Do we need to make draft or doctors have to write themselves there comments and,
About submission, should i tell them to upload themselves on ERAS or should i do it myself...

Another question is regarding home LOR, I got it in 2009, should I use that or I should get new (ALTHOUGH IT IS NEAR TO IMPOSSIBLE). What should I do.

The first step is getting an ERAS Token from your ECFMG OASIS account.

It's OK to use your 2009 home country LoR. But you should supplement it with US LoR that are preferably not more than one year old.
