Clock To wait or not wait for LoR upload!

hey guys, just received my ECFMG certificate. Thanks Step taker for all ur help as well as others too !!
One more question, i have uploaded one LOR today thru LWP, i think it will take a week to upload into application. My question is should I assign the LOR and apply with it on the 1st Sept or should I wait for the application to be uploaded and then apply around 10th sept? i really want to use that LOR but if not I have 3 others that I can use.
Do the programs download the LORS on the 1st sept the moment they get them. Can I change the LORs sent, once my new LOR gets uploaded?
Plz help , what to do. I think this is a query of a lot of people.
Good luck to you all, Thanks in advance .

Don't delay your application for any reason.
Create a slot for it and assign it to the programs and apply. Later when ERAS upload it, the PDs will get it automatically.

Regarding the other question, You can't change the LORs after you apply if you already assigned 4, but if you assigned 3 and applied then you can add a 4th one later.

Hi! I am in the same boat.... how do you assign a slot for it?
I am waiting for it in the MyERAS LoR document tracker.
It is not showing up yet, but I received an email that ECFMG has received it.
Please advise....

U need to go to documents tab, LoRs section and you will have to fill some information about the LoR then finalize it by clicking submit. U have to do this to see it in ur ATDS, it will take few days (1-3 days) usually to be uploaded and show up there after u finalize it.
