Question Repeat Applicant LORs

I was going to apply last year but then I didn't. I still have all my LORs from last year. I asked my letter writers to update the letters and re-upload them and they agreed to that. One of them is away on leave and said she wouldn't be able to so I'm planning on reusing her letter. I just selected the reuse option for her letter on ERAS.
Now how do I email the rest of my professors the request for an LOR through ERAS? I remember there was an option to do that last year through the ECFMG site but now I'm just getting a tab which says 'List of LoRs from last year'

ERAS no longer accepts paper mail. I had the same question and i called up ERAS for the answer. The solution is to simply buy your token, log into ERAS and finalize your letter. If its already on ECFMG the it will automatically be uploaded to ERAS. When you finalize your letter you will get to print out the LOR request form, email that to your letter writers. Thats it. You dont do anything differernt, ERAS will automatically upload the most updated version of the letter you have.
