Clock How long the LoR takes to upload via LWP!

Hi folks, both my US LORS have been uploaded today. I remember one thread saying that the letter was uploaded to ERAS post office the day after. I know that it said there that it may take 1-2 weeks for it to be uploaded to the post office. Is this what the majority experienced? because i want my letters to be on the post office asap, and i'd be so happy if i was like the other forum member that had his/her letter in the next day.

according to eras document updates, they are scanning aug 29 documents and processing sept 7 documents, and If my letter is to follow that delay, I may have my letters uploaded on october! what a bummer.

The LWP just help in expediting the time from writing the letter to reaching the ECFMG.
So you can consider that your LoR has reached ECFMG today, so you can guess when it will be uploaded to ERAS, maybe 2 weeks

Sorry for the bad news dude..
