Default Can lor be uploaded and assigned after submitting application ?

So quick question

I have good lors. But honestly after the end of this externship I'll be receiving an lor from the program director himself. And obviously I want to use that. So can I right now send 3 lors and then once that lor comes can I upload and assign that lor to the same programs I applied to after submitting my application?

Does anybody know the exact procedure of uploading the LOR after submitting the application, and does it really mean anything if its uploaded after the application is submitted.

Absolutely yes. Had my fourth LoR uploaded after having applied to programs.

Go to "Programs applied to," select a program, click the check box for the new uploaded LoR, then click select.

Its utility depends on whether they will see the LoR before the program decides on your application. When I uploaded, I noticed that some programs retrieved my LoR while others haven't done so.
