Question Uploading ERAS docements

Given starting from 2014, no paper documents would be accepted by ERAS. I found that my university does not use the ERAS system and we need to upload documents by ourselves. Why I need to scan the transcript and upload it electronically while ECFMG themselves already have it as they ask for it when they verify credentials from the medical school? Probably the scanning and uploading quality of mine will be lower or different than that already saved in the ECFMG? What do you think, guys?

Yeah. I would agree with you. It sounds redundant that they are asking for it again.

The problem is that ERAS operates independently from ECFMG, they belong to the AAMC which is completely separate from the ECFMG.
