Default PTAL & MyERAS question

hi all, any help would be greatly appreciated.

my dilemma is such, I found out last week that the California Medical Board has gotten and I assume approved my PTAL (everything including ecfmg certification), the problem is it looks like it might take 3-4 weeks to get to me.

I heard it's not good to apply to programs too late, so should I stil lapply to California FM/IM programs on Sept. 15 and risk getting filtered out since one of my LOR's will not be a PTAL, or wait till late September and then apply w/ PTAL uploaded.

I'm a resident of California, so obviously California would be my preference. Any advise?
