Help LATE LORS (Urgent Help )

Hi,
I am applying in Pediatrics. And I still dont hv any LORS from PEDS. I am waiting on two LORS from my Peds Professors. I will not b getting any LORS on 15th September. My questions:

1- Is it wise to apply without LORS ?
2- Will the programs have an issue that I have attached IM Lors to Peds

1. Do not apply if your application is incomplete - does not make any sense.
2. Did they write the IM-LoR saying that you want Pediatrics , or Internal medicine?

if they are general LoR's then they should be fine, unless the programs you are applying to specifically request LoR's written by pediatricians.

another way in which you can expedite the process is by asking your LOR author to directly upload the LOR through the LoRP, in which case you would have to waive your right to see the LOR. this process supposedly takes a few days compared to the 2 weeks' processing time if you upload it yourself. good luck!

LoR Portal and OASIS uploading time both takes about 2 weeks, the only faster route is when medical school itself uploads via EMSWP.
At least that's what mentioned here

Hello,

I finally got my hands on a temporary Peds LOR. I am going to ask my school to upload it using the EMSWP. it takes two *business* days to upload the LORS accoring to ERAS. It is going to be still 13th (late evening and before midnight. I am right now in South Asia. US is one day behind us! ) when my LOR will be uploaded to the ERAS using the EMSWP. Questions:

Is there any HOPE that It will be processed on 14th? And if it does, then is there any hope that it will be uploaded on Sunday or will I have to wait till monday for it?

-- to be honest, I need some luck and prayers!
