Question Can I submit my LoRs later!

Hi guys,

1) For now I don't have all documents ready, I mean mostly LoRs are not ready, so can I submit documents like MSPE, transcript, home country LoRs for now and then as my US LoRs come, can I submit them later.

2) my home LoR is 2009, it has no AAMC NO. and the professor is retired now ,. is that fine.

3) do we have to send original transcript and MSPE

Thanks , need your help.

Yes, you can later on submit your US LoRs, but remember that you can't apply to programs until you assign them LoRs.

You don't need to submit original medical school transcript but you need to submit original MSPE.

If I submit 3 LORs by September 1st and send in the 4th LOR by the LWP say in the last week of August, will it automatically get updated on the programs that I apply to? Will they have to update my application or once I submit it to all the programs it shows up automatically?

Am not sure I understand your question.
Each LoR has to be assigned to a specific program in ERAS. After your submit your LoR it will just be there in your ERAS account, it won't be automatically sent to programs, you have to manually assign it to each and every program you apply for.

Sorry.. I'll try to make myself a little more clear.
I plan to send in 3 LORs by September 1st, and assign them to all the programs I apply for. Now, I am planning on doing a rotation in August, so I will not be able to get an LOR by September 1st.
So, once I get that LOR which will be the 4th, will I be able to update my applications to all the programs?
Or should I delay the application, wait for the 4th letter and apply to the programs with 4 letters?
Thanks.

Yes. You can add the fourth LoR to each program you applied for later on.
Don't delay your application, apply first with the three LoRs and then add the fourth later on.
You can also send an email to the programs telling them that you've added a fourth LoR, though that's not necessary, they'll already see it in ERAS.
