Certificate LoR Processing Time; Waived versus UnWaived

Does it take the same amount of time for a un-waived and a waived lor to appear in the postoffice??
Or does the waived one appears early in the postoffice... as it needs no verification....coz its sent directly by the letter writer.

Default It's the same

Both waived and unwaived LoRs must be uploaded electronically.

Waived via the LoR Portal in the AAMC website and must be done by the letter writer.

Unwaived via the OASIS website and can be done by the applicant and they don't do any verification, ERAS people will not contact the letter author.

Both processes take the same time. AAMC official estimation is 2-3 weeks for processing though it's usually much quicker than that.

ERAS do not contact letter authors. However, residency programs sometimes contact the letter author via email or phone if they have suspicions or if they want to know more info about the applicant.
