Question Does getting NRMP ID late hurt your chances of matching?

I got my NRMP ID kind of late after I submitted my ERAS. I updated the ID onto my profile much later. I guess I waited long because I wanted to see how many interviews I would get first before paying the $60. Will this hurt my chances of matching; will programs think I was being lazy and not taking the match seriously enough?

Absolutely not.
Programs interview and rank applicants regardless of their NRMP status because they take it for granted that you will have your registration complete, etc. by the rank order list deadline.
The same is true for those programs who interview applicants before they are ECFMG certified. They assume you will have your credentials sorted out by the appropriate deadlines.

Thanks! I hope so, because it is taking me painfully slow to finish this stuff since I have not graduated yet.

Hi ! I am sorry to hijack the post. I just wanted to clarify- This is the NRMP ID for which we were supposed to register before mid november, right? I just wanted to make sure that there is no additional registration we have to do or anything else we have to fill up to participate in the match.. Thanks!
