Question Inquiry about non-US LoRs

Dear all,

I have a few Professors from my med school who have willingly to write LoRs to support my ERAS 2014. I have already registered for ERAS 2014.

I have a few questions in regards to non-US LoRs and I wonder if anyone of you could help to clear my doubts.

1. Can the Professors from my med school upload the LoRs by themselves or they have to send to ECFMG on my behalf?
2. Can I send them the Letter Request Form to the Professors via ERAS LoR online system?

Thanks in advance for your help guys

Yes your professors can upload it for you via the LOR portal. This means the LOR is waived.
You can print out the letter request form and email them the details in it, or send it to them. They are to open an aamc account, and then upload it. It takes 2 weeks to show in your 'myeras'.
The tricky part here is that it has to be in PDF format, and not more than 1 page. So let them know to avoid any frustration.
