Question Should we apply without MSPE?

Im planning to apply on September 15th and my MSPE will be uploaded to ERAS postoffice 27-28-29th of September. So here is my question - would you still go ahead and apply on sept 15th or should i delay it ?

Considering ECFMG wrote this on their homepage

"When ECFMG receives your MSPE, it will be transmitted to the ERAS PostOffice regardless of whether you have applied to a program. All MSPEs are held at the ERAS PostOffice until October 1, at which time they are released to programs to which you have applied. ERAS Support Services strongly recommends that MSPEs arrive at ECFMG no later than September 15 if submitted electronically via OASIS."

Thanks for your inputs guys.

I will apply sadde, since the programs won't need the mspe immediately. You will be fine as long as you tick the option that asks whether you will provide the mspe.

Any other opinion?

This is probably a very stupid question, but we don't have to finalize MSPE in the LoR section right? I'm confused because Dean's letter is grouped with regular LoR by some programs. Thank you!

Not what i know of - only documents that you need to finalize are - PTAL , LoR from a PD if you have done residency training , and regular LoRs.

Similar Q here: I have one already uploaded, but it has some grammar and minor errors. My school can help me with a new one, but not until 16th of this month.

What should I do?
