* When to Ask a LOR? with no AAMC ID number yet
 #674047

  Hi i am looking forward to get a match this year, this would be my first participation,

i have a question since i dont have an AAMC ID number yet, when would be the best time i would ask for my LOR?

i have a 3week observership coming up but it would end in the last week of may, should i come back when i get my ID?

how should i approach this problem?

thank you very much

  yeah but in eras it says to include the AAMC ID Number in the body of the letter, dont know if ERAS would accept the letter when i submit it.

  To make it easier you can do the following

1. Get a letter - This way the content and format is DONE

2. Reqeust the writer to reissue the letter once you get the number. You can discuss this with the writer when you perform step 1 above.

3. Most writers are very organized and they keep a folder for you on your computer. This way they can reference interaction in the future.
