I have read that some program directors see a repeat applicant with a red flag.. but that is not as bad as having failed a step or not being certified on time..

SOme repeat applicants improve their CV so much that in fact they can be seen with good eyes (program directors like passion, effort, endurance and so on)

Also depends when you graduate.. if you will remain as a recent graduate even by 2015 match I would advise you NOT to apply and instead get awesome scores , include step 3 and get as much USCE as possible
Hi I have a question too, hope you don't mind answering. What happens if someone has taken ERAS token for this year and has uploaded LORs and other transcripts to ERAS but hasn't applied to a single program? If he/she doesn't apply to a single program this year will he/she be considered a repeat applicant the next year he/she applies?
