Some facts

Your credentials seem excellent.

What is the year of graduation? and what specialty you applied for?

Many programs start sifting superficially through applications early in September. This job is done by the coordinator and not the committee. Therefore, the only possibility is you get rejections if you don't meet the criteria (in the eyes of the coordinator). Most common early rejection reasons are Visa requirement and Year of graduation.

Then later in September and early October, the coordinator will give the filtered applicants list to the committee such as the PD and they will then start choosing from them to send for interviews.

So the fact that you have no rejections so far is actually good news because it seems that you passed the coordinator filter.

However, please note that not all programs send rejections, there is a possibility that you have been filtered out yet they don't notify you.

Also, I know several programs that do not even start this first filter until October (specially University programs).

So the fact that you don't have anything is completely normal and should not make you worry at all.

The September/October IV invitation ratio is 1:5
This means that if you get one IV in September then you'll get 5 IVs in October.
For someone to have zero IVs in September, it's difficult to predict what will happen in October.
Have faith, be patient, and hopefully some IVs will start to show up in your inbox next week.

Two email copies

I would like to know whether they send IV by email or by calling up? I'm not in the US for the time being. Thank you.
They send an email to the email that you registered with ERAS. If your email somehow missed it you can check your ERAS inbox as another copy goes there.
