Fire Thread Assigning 4 LORS does oit affect Programs asking 3

Hi all

If the program is saying 3 LORS and if I assign 4 lors in the ERAS, does it affect my application?
Will the programs eliminate me by filters?

Anybody please answer.Thank you.

3 is the minimum requirement not the maximum. 4 by default is the maximum for any program on ERAS. You can feel free to upload 4 LORs for the programs asking for 3 LORs. Your application may get filtered if you fail to meet the minimum requirement of 3 LORs, but not if you exceed it.
