Default Both waived and unwaived LORs

Hello guys, I realize time is not exactly on my side right now as I just received my CK score. I have 3 US LORs received as atachments in my email. I wanted to reach out to the doctors who wrote then so they can submit them but have yet to hear from them so that I can vonfirm a waived LOR in ERAS. Let's say I confirm them as waived LORs and send them the form. Can i then add the same physicians as anunwaived LOR to upload myself in the event they do not respond in time, or would you recommend I just submit them as unwaived LORs? These externships were in 2013 and hence the difficulty in contacting these physicians. I am lso not cirrently in the US.

Kind Regards

It's better if you upload waived letters. Try to get in touch with the physicians!
