Certificate Applied with no MSPE and no Medical School Transcript!

Hi,

I have a serious query..I haven't submitted my MSPE and TRANSCRIPT personally so far..

my college had sent it earlier during ECFMG CERTIFICATION.

I have started to apply for residency programs ..I began to realize this after looking into forums.

I have temporarily withheld my applications..

should i apply and send the documents with DSF by FedEx...or should I wait till my transcript copy reaches ERAS.

forum seniors...kindly let me know.

Hi
your medical school send documents to ECFMG not to ERAS.

you have to send them to ERAS, if this step is not done, then do it ASAP by the most rapid way.

You need to apply now and ERAS will update the programs later when you assign the documents to the programs if this option is not available from now.

Although you must apply now, howver delaying fot 10 days will not make a big difference. I would apply now if I was in your place especially that the MSPE will not be released soon by anyway as you know. If you are sure that the transcript will be auploaded by that time you may delay but I don't think so.

MSPE won't be uploaded to ERAS until November first, even if you make it available now.

So there's no problem in the MSPE delay.

But for the final medical school transcript, it's important to be in your file at the time of application. Many PDs do look at the transcripts when they want to send for interviews.
