You cannot upload to ERAS yourself.

You have to use ECFMG ERAS Services (link available in your OASIS account).

Please provide more detail information on it.
I am confused cause i see ECFMG EARS service link in OASIS but it has the option of uploading MSPE and transcript, LORs etc. So my question is,
1. all these can be uploaded there or we have to sent it in mail to ecfmg ERAS???
2. If we have to send it by mail, then where can i find the whole address?

You have both options you can upload them or mail them.

If you want to mail them, then you need a DSF (Document Submission Form) which you can download from your OASIS, it mentions the entire address.

If you wan to upload them, your school should not be participating in EMSWP. If your school is in EMSWP, then your school has to upload them, (am talking about medical school transcript and MSPE).

For letters of recommendations you also have two options, mailing them or using the Letter Writing Portal (your letter writer upload it electronically).

Default scanning the LOR and uploading it through ECFMG

can i scan my LORs and upload it through the "ECFMG upload LOR" option. Does that mean that the original copy of the LOR stay with me, or do i need to mail it to ERAS too.

Yes, you can, or you can sent it per mail to the ECFMG ERAS support service. Uploading is faster though.

1-2 weeks for OASIS uploading
4-6 weeks for regular mail or even courier

Yes. Correct.
You can use OASIS to upload your LoR, only if you have not waived your rights to view the LoR.

IF i assign my LOR for a specific specailisation, lets say IM, can i still use the same LOR for FM?
If not, is it better to keep that LOR unassigned to any specaility?

Thank you
