Help Started working on myERAS

Hi there,
I am writing in order to ask for help!
I have my Step 1 and ck and just finished my step 2 CS this past weekend and the results might be ready until Sept. My questions are:
1) I can start working on my application, right? I mean, is this a common thing to do? Even not knowing the results yet?
2) How many programs do I choose? How many are the average for an IMG! Is there a place that I can check so as I have an idea of how much $$ I will spend?
I am so lost...

Hi
1-yes buy your eras token and send your documents ASAP to avoid delay in upload.
2-it depends on your scores, visa status and year of graduation.

- I'd say you apply to at least 200 programs. This should amount to around $4,500 in ERAS fees.
- Yes, you can save your application and work on it later on.
