    Has anybody out there started applying already...?

    I am having a bit of trouble trying to figure out what we need to do next after getting a ERAS number by paying 75 $.

    * Yes my PS is on its way
    *Yes I have chosen about 10 programs already in IM

    Now, do I phone them constantly and ask them what next ?
    I don't think so...

    Any suggestions please..

    Most definitely DO NOT phone those programs and ask them "what next?" I know that the ERAS, ECFMG-ERAS, and MyERAS websites can be somewhat confusing/intimidating at first, but I suggest you take the time to read them all once, and take notes as to what it is that you have to do. Just as Crepitus Fremitus said, all the info is there.

    Now by "ERAS number," I can only assume you mean your token??? So the next step would be to go to the MyERAS site, enter this #, and start working on your application. All the instructions are there.

    I transmitted at 12:03am on Opening Day (I know, I have OCD ;)), so I'm pretty familiar with the whole application process now. If you have any specific questions that you can't find the answers to on one of the aforementioned sites, feel free to post them here or PM me. Good luck.

    Thanks guys...

    Guess what happened... I lost that mail with the ERAS #...
    Dunno what I did with that..:oops:


    I know you guys are saying " You are the most disorganised person on earth "... but the truth is its too many things at one time No 1 being Step II in few wks.

    Tried to go into ECFMG OASIS, that is not working now ..taking forever, hope OASIS will give this magic number which will let me get into the ERAS site.

    some non-competitive programs will sign you outside of the match (NYU Downtown comes to mind), but this is the last year, from 2004 all programs will have to stop signing outside the match.
