Gearing up for registering with ERAS on July 1st, I wanted to discuss a few of my queries and have your views on it -
1. Can someone confirm that if our med school participates in EMSWP, the "medical school transcript" and the "MSPE" can only be directly uploaded by the med school via EMSWP; and not by us via OASIS?
2. While browsing the ECFMG ERAS support service website, I read that "unwaived" LORs can be directly uploaded to the LOR portal of ERAS by the "applicants". Or the second option is that our med school can upload it via EMSWP. Does this mean we cannot use OASIS to upload unwaived LORs as we used to before? Here's the excerpt and the link... Discuss!!
"NEW FOR ERAS 2015: All LoRs must be submitted through the AAMC’s Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP) or ECFMG’s Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP). If you have waived your right to view an LoR, your letter writer must upload the letter on your behalf through AAMC’s LoRP. If you have not waived your right to view an LoR, you are permitted to upload your personal copy through the AAMC’s LoRP. Programs are able to view who has uploaded the document."
