Finalize the letters first in ERAS by stating the name of the letter writers. Then, keep checking ADTS (a small link at the top right of the page) to see when the letters were uploaded to postoffice.

Hi,

I also have the same doubt. I want to ask if you know how much time it takes them to put it up in myeras post office? Two of my letters(waived) reached ECFMG by July end but yet neither have been uploaded or even "recieved" in OASIS.

Any inputs??

Hi,

I did, but even in that it says nothing! I hope 4-6 week period they mention includes the time it takes to recieve and upload it. Do you know anyone or have your letter writers have mailed a waived LoR and it has been uploaded?

I have the same question as you, i have only received a notification for a letter that was uploaded through the Letter Portal, i received it right after the author uploaded the letter, and was very fast. But nothing yet for the mailed letter, don't even know if they have mailed them yet

Lets keep our fingers crossed buddy. Hope application is not delayed by these kind of things! Let me know when your letter is uploaded, I will do the same.

mine took 4weeks, i mailed it earlier in july. my estimate, yours wud be couple days more as tons of letters are arriving at this moment at ecfmg. while uploading only takes a week, that's if you haven't waived your rights.
hope this helps.

But when did you first received any kind of notification, how long does it take to know if it arrived yet.

sorry forgot to mention. it was sent by regular mail post office here in US in east coast. maybe ecfmg is somewhere in east too. i have been sending/receiving impt docs internationally, takes 5-7days even with the fastest package, 2-3weeks w/ regular mail.
