California Waiting for California Letter

After sending the USMLE step 1 & 2 scores, CA medical board approves it and after that how long does it take take to send the PTAL usually?
Is it a written letter or something electronic?

There are other forms that have to be accepted by the California Medical Board such as your medical school transcript and the L5 form. So have you got all these received and verified? You can check your status by logging to your WAAS

If you have all these completed then you can expect your letter to arrive in the mail within 2-3 weeks. It's just a simple letter, nothing electronic.
