Certificate LoR is not ready by September 15

* A letter that I have assigned to most programs has not been uploaded yet. I am
hoping it will be done on Monday. If the letter is not received by ERAS by 15th what should I do?

Will the programs assigned to still receive the letter once ERAS has it and should I go ahead and apply on the 15th or should I wait till the letter is receivd by ERAS?

Thanks in advance. *

Dont know what your reasons are to upload LORs for 2014 this year, but to answer your question, LORs received by ECFMG will be available for re-use later.
