Question How to work on ERAS application?

Hi friends I am planning to apply residency this year. I am currently preparing for ck. hope to give it soon. I just got the token then got my aamc id.
Can some one tell me what are we supposed to do next. How do we send the documents like mspe, transcripts and lors?
Is it by postal mail or can we scan them and upload directly? How much time does the whole process take?
I dont have any of documents like mspe, lors with me now. have to start from scratch.
should i get all the documents ready asap or Is it ok if we send documents from august?
i am afraid if that will be late ... can some one plz tell me about it ...

I really appreciate ur help guys .

Thanks ...

The application process is expensive and you should try to be as prepared as you can be for it. I sincerely recommend you to think if it would be better to apply next year when you are certified and have everything ready. Your scores are very important, and those cannot be changed, so I think you should first study very hard, get the best scores you can get. After that work on you US clinical experience, Lors. But it truly depends on what you want to apply to, and everything is possible, but I think it would be better to be prepared and certified when you apply.
Good luck!
