Hi guys,

I did read a related topic before, but wanted to explain my situation here..

I am an IMG, and as of now have 2 LOR's from my home country (India)..
They have been uploaded, BUT my 3rd and 4th LOR's from the US just reached ERAS today..

So, I'm assuming that they would be uploaded in 2-3 weeks time, which is about the 6-13th of September..

My USMLE scores are decent at 242/255/CS pass-1st attempt..

My question is-
Should I apply on the 1st of September, or wait till my LOR's are uploaded..

Or, should I apply to some programs early, but apply to my best programs once they are uploaded..

Yes, I will reserve a slot beforehand, but I don't want them to consider my application incomplete..

Any help would be much appreciated.. Please help:(

Thanks a lot Rasheed.. That sounds like a fair plan..

a) Do you think I'll loose a lot of calls because of the late application?

b) How much value does reserving the LOR's slots do for the program to deem my application complete? I have heard that Program coordinators and Chief residents don't read the LOR's before the interview..

Thanks again..

and anybody know of programs which require only 2 Lor's, I could apply there..
