I passed all my Usmle exams. I haven't applied for ERAS residency yet. Can I apply right now on December? Is there any chance?

I would say wait till next year to apply.

Right now, most programs are either done with interviews or at least filled their interview spots and won't look at your application.

Good luck!

There are people who applied in December and got residency. But most of these people are either AMG or IMGs with amazing board scores +240. If either of these scenario do not apply to you then your better off with applying next year.
