Default Letter of recommendation in September

GUys! I have a doubt! If I get an LOR towards like 20-25th of september can i still ask the author to upload it? I know it takes around 1-2 weeks to be released to programs busince they only start viewing the applications after Oct 1 can I still send it?

@sruthi- I dont believe you can send in an LOR so late unless you're planning to send in applications that late as well. But I am not 100% positive, just what I know from others.

If the LOR is of importance to you and would boost your application then you can upload it late.
All the best! :-)

I started my search of programs to apply to today, and although I am still at the very beginning, I am surprised to see that most programs do not sponsor visas or require a lot of USCE. Who said Pediatrics is less competitive? It doesn;t seem that way to me.

Not really.
If I'm not mistaken, programs only receive MSPE from US students on Oct 1st, so most programs don't even check applications until then... Also, I heard from an ex-PD that they usually wait about 1-2 weeks to start checking applications so they have enough to start filtering.
(As far as I know. Please correct me if I'm wrong)

Quick question, I had a letter uploaded last Wednesday, and it still hasn't been released to MyERAS. Last week, it used to take 2-3 days for the letter to be released, and I understand that now they're so busy that it's taking longer. Anyone had their letters released today at all?

hey guys,
i understand that all of you have applied to a number of programs so its slightly difficult to keep looking at each program's status to see if it has downloaded our documents. i wanted to know if eras has an auto generated email function as well that tells us once a program downloads our application.

That's funny. We need a good sense of humor in these tough times. I also got the rejection, 15 minutes after I applied - they didn't even wait 24 hours ha ha ha ha ha ha...Good luck everyone!!

Hi guys!
Is there a way to know if programs have downloaded our application? Would the "Available" status seen alongside the documents change into something? Or is it like we will know only when they send out invitations or rejections?
