Question Complete Vs Incomplete Application

Hi

My question is - not having a MSPE (2011 grad) on time for application start date (sept 15) - Would my application be considered Complete or Incomplete?

I will have my MSPE ready OCT 1.

Thanks for your help.

Similar Q here. Sabio... We need your help here.

My situations is the following: I already have one MSPE in MyERAS, but it has some grammar errors, and some information is not 100% accurate. My school told me that hey can help me with a new one with the corrections by Sep/16-17. What should I do?

Should I go ahead and use the one with errors tomorrow?

Or should I wait?

MSPE will not be released to programs until October 1st anyway.

However, you have to upload it in OASIS by September 15th in order to have it ready by October 1st.

Missing an MSPE is not really a big deal in the case of an IMG, I wouldn't say the application would be considered incomplete.

definitely......missing 1 lor out of 3 is incomplete application too!
I heard it better to apply with a complete package than an incomplete.....hopefully, my 2ck comes out on 25th before it gets too late

I'm also waiting.... Need 2 LoR to be uploaded to the PostOffice and the results of my CS coming out in first week of October. I know is pointless to apply without a complete application but seeing everyone else applying to programs makes feel that going to be left one. What should I do, wait or apply now?

I am in the same situation. What I am doing is going through the programs eligibility criteria and for those which definitely need cs result with application, I will apply after my result and the rest I am applying.

I did the sane thing cause some programs say that they don't need the cs score by the time of the application and some others need it so that's what I did. But I'm very worry because my school won't send the mspe, cause I'm from Cuba and the f...... government is a dictadure that thinks that we can only work there and they won't give us anything!!!! So I'm kind of discourage because I've been reading all this posts and I'm afraid that my application is incomplete...

Default LoR: complete application?

Should the LoR be from American Professor for IMGs?

Does LoR from homecountry have any value (to fill having 3 letters) ?
