Certificate LoRs and ERAS application

Hello to all!

I have a few questions that I was hoping some of you could answer for me!

1) I will try my best to submit my application by the 1st week of Sept, but will it be considered incomplete if I only have 1 or 2 LORS? I am expecting to get my 3rd LOR some time in early-mid Nov. (which will be my US LOR - which is a VERY IMPORTANT ONE)

2) Will PD's still view my application with only 2 LORS?

3) Could I remove a LOR and add another one in its place?; let say if I am trying to replace a European LOR with a US one.

4) Will I need to inform all the PD's that I have uploaded another LOR or will they be notified automatically?

5) I am thinking of using 1 European, 1 Canadian, and 1 US LOR - Is that fine?

I think those are enough questions for now . I would really appreciate it if you could help me out.

Yes. It will be considered incomplete. The minimum number is 3.

No. They have thousands of applicants so it's a good idea for them to filter incomplete applications to save time.

Yes. You can.

ERAS will notify them but it's better to email the coordinator when you do that just in case she missed the update.
