Question Should I apply for ERAS token now???

Hey.. I need your suggestion. I finished step 1, planning to take step 2 in jan 2012, do 3 months observership, write CS and apply for 2013 match. My friends are suggesting me to apply for ERAS token now so that I would be getting my AAMC number and that I can use it on the LORs if I get one during my observership. But I heard that I have to apply a new token for the next season but I need not reupload all the documents again as the AAMC number will remain the same. Is it really helpful to get the token now? Please suggest something

I don't think it's a good idea.

You might be considered a repeat applicant!
