I have heard of other specialties sending out interview invites on Sept. 15th, the day ERAS opens. I can't imagine ENT doing this, with most of their interviews occurring so late in the season. So what is the benefit of submitting tomorrow (Sept 15) when it's technically not due till much later and most programs wont even read it until the MSPE is uploaded on Oct. 1?

Conversely, what's the point in delaying? Personally, I would get ERAS and everything else in your control done and submitted asap. Even though invites don't go out until later, the process of selecting applicants for interview invites is a complete black box and varies by program. On the off chance some programs do go look at applications chronologically, you wouldn't want to be disadvantaged for submitting a little later than everyone else.
