1-2 weeks is the maximum time ,, in most of the cases it takes 3-4 business days ,, so you can expect to see your lor available no later than this week if not tomorrow

^lol. Relax. When they say it should take 1 to 2 weeks, they're just being cautious. It'll upload sooner than that! Keep your fingers crossed.

you hv to ask your doctor writing LOR he uploaded it or not for waived one ..keep checking your ADTS daily it ll spear within 5 days ...unwaived we upload by ourselves so you already know when I upload ,,Remember Timing are eastern time and couple of working day left so call ECFMG n ask them how much more you hv to wait

According to ERAS my last LOR was uploaded by the author on September 7. So now I am waiting for it to appear on ADTS. I hope it will appear within a day or two.

Thumbs Up Uploading really fast

Hello guys,

Based on my personal experience, the waived LoRs are uploading really fast.

I just had 2 LoRs uploaded this week and both took 24 hours to upload.

Great!

I'm sure your LOR will appear either today or tomorrow..Hang in there..but why would you apply on the 12th? Don't you have to apply on the 15th?

Hi guys

I already have 3 LoRs uploaded, but really would like to have a 4th and most current LoR uploaded. It seems like the 4th one won't get uploaded until after the 15th, so my question is if i send out my application on the 15th and my 4th LoR gets uploaded afterwards, can I still assign that LoR to the programs that I'll have already applied to?

Would really apprieciate your input, and good luck everyone!
