1. Register for NRMP
2. Go to myERAS and fill in all the data.
3. Select programs in myERAS (Freida online can provide some detail regarding criteria)
4. Apply to programs
5. Pay the fee
6. After applying you can check your status at ADTS (on right hand top corner of myERAS)

Wait you knew you'd get CS scores today, yet you sat down, and did absolutely nothing, didnt bother researching on how to apply, havent seen the countless number of posts on the ERAS application system on here?

Ok I am done laughing. People we arent babies, this isnt being spoon fed, this is the neonate still having problems latching on, and not even being able to breast feed!
Doc.mav gave an outline of it, read through posts on here from the past month and you'll get the entire gist.

Of course there are people who are slow for whatever reason (me for instance), who need real encouragement to make up for their deficits or slackness and don't deserve ridicule. The greatest winner in life is not one who finishes the race first but the one who enables the slowest to complete the race. Everyone is a baby sometime in their milestones and nobody pops up spontaneously knowing everything. "Be merciful and you shall be shown mercy"

Neetha, if you are struggling feel free to contact me on my skype ID= MarkUSMLE and I will take you through it if you are struggling with your application.

All the best

Since no one has yet raised the point: ITS LATE in the application season, we're almost a month in, I wouldn't waste THAT much money on it since most of the places that you might select will have sent 1st round of IV's out and has a full waiting list, thus your application (even if one of their best, will get tossed).

At this stage, both your arms & legs have been amputated. I'd suggest applying to a very limited programs, or if anything, hold off this year.
