Default Same conceren over here

I have the same concern, found this post on AAMC that calm my nerves a a little, although I think this is more applicable to US Medical Graduates.

Hi guys,

The bottom line: it does not matter if you submit it a few days after Sept 15th. I would recommend submitting BEFORE Oct 1st. Here's why:

Your Medical Student Performance Evaluation (Dean's Letter to all the AMGs) is submitted on Oct 1st. Many programs will not consider your program until the Dean's Letter is submitted. The earliest interview offers I received last year was early October. On the residency program director side, auto-filters are applied to applications as they come in. It's unlikely that a program's interview spots are going to be filled in the first week after ERAS opens on Sept 15th.

I wouldn't wait too long after Oct 1st to submit. Many internal medicine programs just use autofilters for board scores to submit interview invitations. If you wait too long, they may be all filled up even if your scores are great.
