Fire Thread Is it bad to add NRMP ID to ERAS profile after you have applied for programs?

Hi colleagues,

Do you actually need to register for NRMP before you apply for residency via ERAS? I did apply for programs via ERAS (September 16 and September 30) first and then later registered at NRMP and included NRMP ID to my ERAS profile (October 1). At the time of application for programs I did specified that I am participating in match, but left field for NRMP ID blank.

ERAS support representative told me that all programs should be notified about any changes in my profile and most programs have already downloaded my updated profile with included NRMP ID. Do I need to worry about it? Should I notify each program by email or via the phone about my updates in person? Do they actually need NRMP ID at all for the invitation for the interview? If they desperately need NRMP ID am I still in good position in terms of timing?

at the official site of http://www.nrmp.org they said that
Announcements:
To register for the Main Residency Match, you must provide the AAMC ID number from your MyERAS application. The NRMP ID, however, can be added to your MyERAS Profile at any time and is NOT required to submit your ERAS application.

But I am still worry about the mistake I made because in some programs they can just download my original application and do not even look to my updates. Especially, if they print all applications on paper. Do you know by the way if programs use mostly electronic version of applications or they prefer to print every single application? In general there are a lot of things in the application process that does not required but you have to do it if you want to be competitive.

I would greatly appreciate your feedback on it and your experience with the application process.

Thank you in advance for participation and help.

Sincerely,

Iakov

I have checked whether programs updated my profile and downloaded it with NRMP ID. Fortunately, 98% of programs updated my profile with NRMP ID in 2 days. I hope everything should be fine, unless they printed all files at the beginning on paper. I called to couple of programs and asked one resident about it and they told me that at this time point they would work only with electronic data base. Every committee member have an access to this data base. They could print anything they want but usually do in on rare occasions.

What was your experience? Did you try to find some information about it?

Default Nrmp id

Thank you for replying...I feel a bit more at ease now. Most of the programs have retrieved my updated profile as well,so I guess no harm done. Although in retrospect It was silly to not get the NRMP ID earlier, nothing good ever comes out of proscastinaing anyways..
