Question Incomplete IM Application - please help me decide when to apply

Hi Everyone !

Just wanted to hear your thoughts when would be the best timing to apply given the following scenario.

What I have: Step1/CK/CS, 2 US LORs
What is still missing: 1 US LOR (not yet uploaded), Transcript (uploaded 2 days ago), MSPE (uploaded yesterday), ECFMG certification

So what should I do in this situation?

- Apply Sept 15 ?
- Wait until Transcript, MSPE are in ERAS and apply next week?
- Wait until Transcript, MSPE are in ERAS + 3rd US LOR is uploaded and apply in 1-2 weeks?
- Wait until ECFMG certified (will take 3-4 more weeks) :-(

Or should I apply to some programs Sept 15 and others later?

Any input is more than welcome!

Thanks and good luck to all!
