Mail Uploading Vs. Sending ERAS Documents

Hi all,

One of my classmates has uploaded his ERAS documents (MSPE, Unwaived LoRs, Transcript) to the ERAS website directly (not through the school)..I had heard before that you must mail these documents, but he told me this year its possible to upload by yourself..

I need to confirm this, does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks all.

Yes. It's true.
You can upload the LoRs in OASIS if the LoR is not waived.
You can also upload the MSPE and Transcript if your school does not participate in EMSWP.

You still have the option of mailing them if you like.

Hi,

I just wanted to ask this question here as we are talking about uploading documents. I tried to upload my medical school transcript and for some reason it just won't accept it. I have tried all the possible file sizes, dpi etc. I am so frustrated. I have just one transcript with me and I don't want to mail it. Can someone please help? Has anyone had any luck uploading the documents?

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I figured it out. Just wanted to post it if anybody is having the same problem. Do not use Firefox for uploading documents on ERAS. Eras support services emailed me saying Firefox isn't compatible with their website and advised me to Internet Explorer and it worked.

Thanks!

Why would you mail the documents to them instead of uploading?
