Default Does the name repeat applicant on Eras matter to get interviews? :(

Hi , I am confused about the name of repeat applicant. Like all steps of USMLE which needs first attempt, if I won't match this year and next year I applied with the name of repeat applicant, does it matter to get interviews next year? Some people say repeat applicant is not good. Is it true?

I am going to apply with ECFMG certificate on Sep 15 and I am going to take step3 in Sep and i will have my score on 25th of Sep.
So, if I choose "yes" in usmle transcript release option, then will my step3 score automatically update in Eras for Programs to use? Or How long will it take ?

I also heard that if a program download my profile, then the update score n my Eras won't affect for that program and it won't be seen by that program.
Do u also think like that?
So, should I email or call the program at that time?
Please advice me. THanks

Don't listen to people who say that being a repeat applicant is not good. It may be concerning to some programs but it's not as bad as failing an exam. I know plenty of people who finally matched after their second and third attempts. People these days talk a lot of bull just to discourage you.
