What if all my docs are in ERAS and i have no copies?
I wasnt thinking about making copies and waived my right for LORs.
Would that mean that my only choice is that ERAS supported 30 programs?

How should I pick those programs to make the best out of that chance? Should I pick different program from different location?

Unfortunately you cannot get the copies back from ERAS if you waived your right to see the letters.

There are a few options:
1. Ask the LOR writers for a copy (non-waived)
2. When applying on your own (not via ERAS), compile a list of LOR writer names, titles and your experience with them and add a note that full copies are available in ERAS. When using ERAS in the Scramble, do not use all 30 applications, leave 2-3 available for sending to the programs that asked for the LORs.
