If you upload them now and not use them till next year, you will be a repeat applicant. also you will be applying with letters dated a year ago.

your choices...

Keep in contact with your attendings and ask for the letter next year if you want them waived.

or

get unwaived letters dated for next year.

wait. what?

you do realize that if you say you are going to apply for the 2015 match, you need to ask for your LORs now and have them ready for september 15 right????

Application for 2015 match WILL begin on september 15 2014.

From what I understand of your post and the answers that you take as satisfactory, you are actually going to apply for the 2016 match.
