Question ADTS; Transcript first then Application; What's the Deal?

hi,
I am a participant of the match and I wanted to ask if somebody knows the significance of different programs downloading transcripts first, and after few hours download the whole application???
does that mean that the scores were good enough to be considered for them to download the whole application???and the application would be considered?????/thanks

It's a somewhat confusing policy actually. So, yesterday, Day 1 of ERAS opening up, there were a select programs that downloaded the application regardless of the transcript delivery, but today, I noticed that for virtually all the programs, the USMLE transcript was first and thereafter it was the rest of the file.

I think this shows one thing that they want to screen people and then download the rest of the file. I guess they don't want to burden their system by having unnecessary applications whose scores aren't compatible to what they want in their resident profile.

According to a program director in the other bulletin board, the order of download has nothing to do with filter. The programs have to download all the data before they can start applying filter. The difference in downloading order is just due to overcrowded of the server during this application season.
