    I BELIEVE THAT MANY PROGRAMS USE ERAS FOR THE SCRAMBLE. I ALSO KNOW THAT MANY APPLICANTS PARTICIPATING IN THE SCRAMBLE USE FAX TO SEND THEIR DOCUMENTS TO THE PROGRAMS. I WAS WONDERING, IF I WANT TO USE THE ERAS FOR SCRAMBLE PURPOSE THEN WHAT IS THE METHOD? HOW DO I NOTIFY ERAS TO FORWARD MY DOCUMENTS ELECTRONICALLY TO THE PROGRAMS THAT I AM INTERESTED IN ?
    WITH ONLY 24 DAYS FOR THE MATCH, I KINDA WANT TO BE PREPARED FOR THE WORST CASE SCENARIO:scared: ALTHOUGH I HOPE TO MATCH SOMEWHERE:confused:

    if you use ERAS for the scramble, which not all programs do (they have an asterik besides them in the unfilled list), then it would have all your documents in it and you only checkmark them to send them to the program, just as if you were applying.

    I think there's a maximum of 30 ERAS applications you can use, they are free and you cant pay to get more.

    First off, I recommend turning off caps lock.

    Last year when I was scrambling I used eras and several of the programs didn't get the eras app so I ended up faxing my app also - somake sure even if you plan on only using ERAS that you have hard copies of your app and a fax machine. You might have to use it unexpectedly.
