I just have a quick question about my photo for Eras. I had one professionally done over the weekend, and uploaded it a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, I was not aware that there was a 2 business day delay in uploading photos for eras. I just checked, and it is still not uploaded. How should I approach this?

If I assign my photo to all of the programs I want to apply to, will it go to them as soon as the photo is finally uploaded, or should I just hold off on assigning it until it's uploaded, and send it then?

Was not expecting a 2-3 day delay in uploading a stinking photo (The last thing I had to do for my ERAS) :(

Well, you are correct that this is a silly question. Just apply, and the photo will be assigned when it is complete. No one will care.

All documents, whether it be med school transcript, USMLE transcript, LORs, photo, ABSITE scores (for people doing surgical fellowships) can be uploaded and assigned at any point, including after you submit your application.
