Question Last LOR not uploaded - apply tomorrow anyway??

Hey all the best for the coming funny season.
94(221)/86(210)/CS -1st attempt/certified/GC/USCE/publications
Quick question
I have everything ready to apply tomorrow except a vital American LOR that should have arrived at ECFMG 3 weeks ago.

The helpline says it will be uploaded in 5-10 days.

Can I go ahead assign it to programs and apply without it being uploaded yet?

Thanks in advance and good luck.

Goodluck

I am at the same boat actually. I currently started my observership less than 5 days ago, so it is obvious that a letter can't be made yet, but still, I have assigned/ finalized an LOR slot for this US LOR, that's my third LOR, and the 2 are from my home country. So to say, I really have 3 letters, and I specified in my CV/CAF that my observership is on going as of Sept 1. So hopefully PD see two of my points:

1. That an observership is still on going as of Sept 1 2011, and so a letter would not be expected as of yet, BUT will be out soon

2. I have an LOR slot for that Doctor i am observing for, in the process of being made. So technically i still meet the "minimum of 3 LORS", it will just gonna be late
