Embarrassed PAPER LOR- Please help!

Hello everybody!!

Just have a very fast question here, hope somebody can answer me!
If a doctor give to me a paper LOR (I mean, he didn't enter Lor portal and upload it by himself), can I upload the letter by myself?

I know that waived LOR's are muuuuch betther, but just wonder if it is possible to upload a letter by yourself! And if it is possible, should I create an account on LORp to do so?

Thank you very much

Yes you can upload it yourself. On MyERAS enter the letter author info like you would for a waived LoR. Select I "No" for I waive my right to view my LoR. That will generate the letter request form. Now to go to the LoRP. You can use your ERAS ID and password to sign in to LoRP. Upload the letter and you're done!

Keep in mind two things, one, the programs will know the letter is unwaived and two the letter will have "uploaded by applicant" mentioned on the document.
