Default my mspe is not uploaded , will this affect my application heavily?

God damn my medical school.

I requested it 2 months ago, sent multiple emails and its still NOT READY.

Most american schools release it today so I'm already at a disadvantaged.

Arghh I'm so pissed.

You should have kept reminding (bugging/pestering) your school to get their heads out of their a** and get on it. You should have been doing that since the beginning of September.
You application will appear incomplete to programs who give a crap about MSPE, which will possibly hurt you (thx to your school). From what I've heard and seen, lots of programs have already dished out a lot of interviews to AMGs (as well as IMGs) two weeks before MSPE release date. Which kinda makes me think how important really is this garbage if programs don't even bother reading it before sending out invites.

Then again lots of ppl say, most programs send out invites after MSPE release.

Your option right now is to get on the phone with your school and ask them to kindly upload your MSPE to the postOffice.

Take this word from a program director I have got to know she stated it clearly to me since I had the same dilemma with my medical school delaying my MSPE she said your MSPE is worthless to us since it doesn't follow our format most of the time and tend not to value it much.

Thanks so much i hope this is true for most programs.

Although my school is international so it probably fits their standard, they probably wont know that though, they will probably think 'just more IMG crap '

Im extremely happy about the interviews i have so far, but i think i have a very remote chance of entering a good university program.

Im worried that if i dont have the MSPE they wont even bother to look at my app :/

Sorry if i come of as ungrateful, you know how this process gets EVERYONE on their nerves.

My friend (who's in the same situation) just went to the university and spoke with the international affairs office.... they told him that they started working with the MSPEs just last week, and that they are going to upload them throughout october, which means i could potentially get it the last week of october.....

FMLFMLFMLFML

True, but some programs stick to "policy" and use it to reject, stupid yes, but it is what it is, they know the IMG/IMG schools just give everyone a good MSPE
