Question How much time by LWP to be uploaded.. your experience?

Hi Folks...

My letter writers have been too lazy....with continuous pushing I was able to
Upload Letters by LWP on 4 th and 7 th August..
I got the notification your letter was uploaded but to follow ADTS.
(I thought the letters were uploaded instantly!..lack of knowledge as IMG)

its not available In Post office ..yet...
Anyone has letter uploaded on the same date as mine and the letter is uploaded?
Its say 1-2 weeks..but 2 weeks would be late...
Thanks....

If you upload them through LWP, normally they would be available in ERAS post office within 4-5 days (even they officially mention 2 weeks).

If you had your letters uploaded in August 4th or 7th and it's still not available now, you should make a call to clarify this issue out.

However I believe there is a problem with Eras services now. They are proceeding uploads received up to August 27th and that day seems to be frozen. I have 3 letters uploaded in September 3rd and 10th and I am so scared if they could be available before Sept. 15.

calm down, it's my guess as the status was "Monday August 27" for unusually longer than a normal process. But you should definitely check it out.

I have a letter uploaded after that, mid August, and it showed a couple of days later. Did you finalize your letter writers in ERAS?

Help Need suggestion

Guys what should we do then? Should we apply when LOR is loaded or should we apply on 15th?
I have 3 LoR's from my home country,but my only US lor so far is not showing up in ERAS PO.I had finalized it much earlier in August,but uploaded it on OASIS on 6 September evening.
Steptaker or Sabio may be helpful in suggesting the right approach.

That's impossible. I guess you have all your LORs uploaded around early August. Now you just finalize those and that's why they are available in ERAS post office. However, normally LORs via LWP are available after uploaded around 3 days. It's the delay of ERAS service and there would be no exception to anyone though.

I have a question, supposed I decide to apply without all my lors tomorrow,what happens if I assign an LOR which is finalized in myeras but is still not available in post office and apply to a program. will that letter be automatically available to the program as soon as it arrives post office? or should we assign it later when it becomes available in the post office?
