Question Assigning LoRs after application

Perhaps this has been asked before, but I just want to find if it is still possible to assign or de-assign LOR's even after our applications are submitted on September 1.

My other LOR cannot be sent yet and I don't want to assign it yet up until I am sure it can be sent on time.

You can de-assign LoRs but that does not guarantee that the program did not download it and print out and put it in your file already before you de-assign it.

If your LoR is not in ERAS already, you can not assign it to programs.

If you don't assign a minimum of 3 LoRs to each program you can't apply on September 1st.
