Question How do you read unwaived LoRs in ERAS!

I got a letter written and uploaded recently by one of my LOR writers. I can see it was uploaded at the ADTS tab successfully, but am curious as to the contents since I did not waive my right to view the letter (I.e unwaived)... Is there any way I can navigate the complex eras website so as to see this letter?...thank you for your response....

FYI ..I trust the letter writer..am just curious as how this unwaived thingy works..

Arrow Your letter is waived

If the LoR is unwaived then the letter writer give it to you in your hand and you go upload it yourself in the OASIS website.

Since you are saying that the letter writer uploaded the LoR himself then this means that the letter is waived and you cannot read it whether in ERAS or anywhere else.

Default So basically an unwaived LOR can become waived?!!

I ticked not waived for the letter request form I provided the writer so I could see the content of the letter...however I was not available to collect the letter so he went ahead and uploaded it...hence am wondering, does it mean my creating that request form as an unwaived PDF was meaningless and I can not see its contents? ...strange ...cos I couldn't find anywhere to preview an unwaived letter created in this manner on Eras....

The letter writer can upload unwaived letter through the LOR portal.

I guess you would have to ask the writer to send you a copy of the letter.
