I read somewhere that there is an option to "waive" it on ERAS so that ERAS will consider your application is complete and send it to programs. I also hear somewhere that programs will not look at Dean Letters from IMGs. But I am not sure at all :-) I have the same issue...

no problem , you just need to indicate on the eras , you wont be able to send your MSPE, is not a big deal for IMGs at all. but if you do not check the box in page 3 I think, I am not sure, the programs will be waiting for your MSPE. if you check it,

ECFMG will be your deans office, and will provide a deans letter. Like the courses you took and things like that. and give a sheet for it.

AGain I emphasize is not a big deal if you dont provide and check mark the box, but if you dont check mark the box, you will have issues.

Now if ever asked explain why you could not give a MSPE, but will this question be asked, very unlikely.


MSPE is used since AMG do not apply with CK.
