Default MSPE and MS Transcript necessary for an IMG?

Hello everyone,
Is uploading these documents necessary for an IMG? For the transcript, I believe ECFMG should have a copy of mine. Can I just request it to be transferred to ERAS?

I ask because my performance in medical school wasn't exactly excellent but ai managed to make up for it with my Steps afterward and would prefer not even uploading them.

Is the MSPE the same or similar to the transcript? Is it mandatory? And would it take time to complete/require my school to send it?

Look fotward to your assistance.
Kind Regards

Yes. You can request ECFMG to transfer your medical school transcript to your ERAS application.

No. MSPE is a different document. You should contact your school and ask them how much time they would need to create your MSPE. Do it ASAP.

Yes both are a required. The time it takes to get them depends on how your medical school works I guess. You can request ECFMG to upload the transcript you sent to your ERAS application. MSPE is not the same as transcript and the content varies with each school (google MSPE AAMC to know the detailed format pf MSPE).

Yes, resquest a transfer for the script but upload it too. I remember it says it somewhere... After 24 hours I had mine accepted.

My MSPE sucks too but many programs ask for it as a requirement to apply, I don't know if the lack of it will make you get filtered out. If your school doesn't extend MSPE you can tick the 'No' box.

Thanks, I found a stamped document in my paperwork from my University which appears to be a Dean's Statement or letter of good standing (letterhead and date but not specifically saying Dean's statement). It just states I compelted 5 years of Study in my university and passrd my final exam, listed a few positive qualities, mentioned my research thesis and overwll grade (A) and qleo mentioned that 75% of clinical interactions were in english as well as my exams.

Can I upload this focument as my MSPE

Regards
