Default Doing Elective after finishing graduation.

Hello
I wanted to know something. I graduated as a medical student in december 2017, however I have been selected for some clinical elective rotations in december 2018. I have not got any elective experience yet . And I am planning to apply for ERAS in September 2019. Would it be a problem, if I submit the LORs of 2018, while my graduation date in december 2017? How badly will it affect my residency application? Will my elective experience be deemed invalid?

Default LOR timing

Dear Anupam,

Your timing is just fine. You are within the typical 5 year after graduation window, and your LORs will reflect your experience that happened within one year of your residency applications.

The way you have timed this is quite typical for IMG applicants, so not to worry.

Please let us know if we can help you in any way.

Sincerely,

Lori Ramos Winther
