Star Need advice

Hello,

My 3 waived LoR from hospital based physicians, will be hopefully ready before Sep 15th.
2 of them are from the speciality I am applying for.
1 letter is from US physician and 2 from home country.
4th waived LOR from US professor with whom I am doing research, will be ready after Sep 15th and most likely before Sep 20th.

I am now confused that should I apply on sep 15 with my 3 LoR and than send the 4th later to all programs?
or
Should I wait for 4th LoR and apply 3-4 days late?

I would really appreciate your suggestions.

i think the advantage of applying on the 15th vs the 20th is pretty over-hyped. Does the order in which applications are received effect your ultimate outcome? Last yr the system crashed the first day. And i would think most programs dont give interviews until oct anyways, after reviewing all apps. So i would suggest you wait if you think the letter will strengthen ur application.

Any other opinions?
