      I just paid & applied on ERAS... Been certified for weeks though. I've also had my Comlex status authorized for weeks. Why then does it just say that my Comlex status report is now processing? Will my Comlex scores take a few days to be available to programs or will I be okay by Sept 29 morning of?
      It didn’t process because you didn’t pay yet.

      it should only take minutes.

        If I have a letter (4th letter) being uploaded tomorrow will it potentially be missed (and not "downloaded") by reviewers. I am confused about how this works. Any explanation would be appreciated!

            Do apps go out tomorrow?

            Don't stress bro, you'll kill it. Interview season is a very weird mix of stress but also a lot of fun
            They do go out tomorrow. Also, I’m applying DR, so if they do go out by Friday I’ll be very happy.

            I was practicing today and just realizing how much room there is to fumble through questions.

              I like what Ortho is doing with having all interview invites go out on the same day and giving applicants 48 hours to respond. This mess of having to pull off on the side of the road to make sure you lock in a spot is crazy.

                ****, I'll just crash and work the story into my "tell me about a time you overcame hardship" interview response.

                  Haha I know, I was kidding. I have no idea when DR invites are going out. But you'll be just fine.

                  It's honestly not that bad. Residency interviews are not as antagonistic as medical school interviews are. Remember that you are interviewing them almost as much as they are you.

                    I’ll just picture them naked so I don’t get nervous.

                      so how does this work can you pick from a variety of interview dates? and does it matter if you pick a date later in the cycle? realistically it would make sense that it doesnt matter when u interview between now and jan since rank is in feb or maybe im wrong

                        ACOG recommended this method for OBGYN programs too. Anyone know if OB plans on following suit?

                            Internal Medicine started day 1.
                            Nah it doesn’t matter. I didn’t interview at the program I’m at until January
                            I also interviewed at my current program in January after getting a “maybe” message in November and interview invite in late December.

                              In preparation for tomorrow, please please please have some way that you get alerts from your email address you gave ERAS. I really advocate having them forwarded as a text to your phone number as that is faster then just the generic email app even with refresh settings the highest they can be. I also set up a forward to my husband’s phone as a back up.

                                I'm not sure about the logistics to be honest. I would assume it doesn't matter. The date is also fairly late (November 18th I think) so the interview season itself will probably be fairly short.

                                  Yesterday morning my letter writer emailed me that she would get my letter out before the night ended. She said don’t worry, I got you, yet Still no letter. Don’t think I can email her again after messaging her a day ago. Stuff like this annoys me. Luckily I have 3 letters already.

                                    Programs also have waitlists for interview dates.
                                    Does this mean responses are super time sensitive and u could end up on the waitlist if you dont respond immediately (like within minutes?). I really hope thats not the case lol and if you are on the waitlist are you not guaranteed to get off?
