Mail Can we still mail the LoRs?

Hi friends,
I have a doubt. Do the LORs have to be uploaded online this time around or can we still send the LORs through mail to ecfmg?
Thanks

Thanks for the reply Shima! I meant, do the LORs need to be uploaded through web only or can we send the LORs through post to ecfmg as well?

LoRs have to be uploaded this year.. They went paperless.

Make sure you have it uploaded by September 1st latest.
You can also have it in later and remind the residency program about your "new document" you have for them- a strong LoR with recent clinical experience or research (sept, oct, nov, dec, maybe even January)

PM me if you need more help.. I actually asked my physicians to upload the LoRs from my externships because it goes straight from the hospital IP addresses.

Yup, you can surely upload it yourself. But, my 2 cents would be to waive your rights. I believe, a waived Letter would carry much more weight.
