Help Finalizing LoR

Hello everyone!

I have my exam in the end of Aug. Is it okay if i have only sent my MSPE and med school transcript to ECFMG by courier..and I upload LoRs by Sept 1st? Is it okay if i start working on my ERAS application from 1st Sept??
I have yet to get my LoRs..So, is it okay if i upload them on Sept 1st? will it be too late?

Thank you.

Hi
from my personal experience you should only finalize the lor after your letter writer has uploaded the lor.
I made the mistake of finalizing the same letter writer twice and discovered they only assign the lor to one of the finalized slot, now which would it be. you certainly do not want to attach an empty slot to a program.
i hope you are able to make some sense out of my mumbo jumbo speech.
all the best
