There is no urgency in registering with NRMP, you have till November end to pay 60$ and then until December/January you can register for 60$+Late Fee.

The only purpose to register with NRMP right now is (1) You don't forget later on and (2) Complete profile on ERAS.

That's it.

So not registering with the NRMP means you have an "incomplete profile" on ERAS?

Incomplete as there is a section in the profile of ERAS to write in your NRMP. Again, its not a big deal, but we all hope to match this year. You can surely wait until October or November to register. No need to panic.

No program will disregard your app b/c you dont have NRMP number listed on ERAS.

Even if you dont get IVs .. you will need NRMP for participating in SOAP.

So there is no disadvantage just register (I know thats what you already did .. so dont regret)

Good Luck !!
