Calendar Need advice of when to apply to programs

Hi ok so I have a couple of questions...

I will have my Step 1 and Step 2 CK Scores by Sept 1 and probably 2 LoRs, should I apply to all the programs I'm going for (for IM/Anesthesiology) on Sept 1 with just these results? Or would it be better to wait for CS results/more LoRs. I am taking CS November 18th so those results will be a while.

Would I be automatically filtered out of programs if I just have these results available? I am a US citizen international medical student.

Also lets say I do apply Sept 1 with just Step 1 and Step 2 CK results and 2 LoRs, when I get more LoRs/Results of CS out and uploaded to MyEras, will all the programs I applied to automatically get updated with these new documents or do I have to individually email each program's residency coordinators that I have these new documents??

Sorry if these are dumb questions, thanks!

Hi Androide

If you are not planning to postpone your app for the next match then do the following:

1-create the slots for the LORs that you are expecting to get and assign them to the programs in your eras so that they will know that you are expecting new LORs to be uploaded, once you send them to eras and get uploaded the PDs will be notified through their PDWS that you have updates in your profile, this way you will have a second look.

2-for your USMLE score, just click on update automatically in your eras, so when your result is out it then the PDs will be notified too.

3-Delaying your app to beyond the 1-2 weeks of spetember will lead to major compromise in the interviews you are excpecting to get.
