Help Recent Document Download in ERAS by Residency Programs

So I was late with my LoRs and was uploaded to ERAS recently. The residency programs are just now downloading my LoR.

What does that mean? Does mean that they will consider me, because just now they are looking at my documents?

Please help

Unhappy Sorry for the bad news ..

Documents download in ERAS is an automated process. It does not mean anything.

Here's a proof for you.

In my match, I got my updated documents downloaded by programs that have already sent me rejections! So downloading documents is completely automated is not manual.

What you need to know is when they did actually print out your documents and when did the program director actually read your documents! These events you won't be able to know about in ERAS.
