Default Can I modify/add LORs after Submitting Application?

Hello, is it possible to modify or add LORs after submitting your ERAS application. I am awaiting some waived LORs but fear they may be delayed and I may have to modify them to unwaived so that I may upload the attachments I had received from the doctors a couple of years ago. Would this he possible or must they be clearly assigned invluding their type prior to submitting the application.

You cannot change assigned letters to programs you have applied to but you can add to those letters so the total LoRs assigned to each program is 4 LoRs.
For example: you have L1, L2, L3, L4, L5 are LoRs uploaded and ready to use.
You assigned these letters as the following:
program1: L1 L2 L3
program2:L2 L3 L4
Program3: L4 L5
Then you applied to these programs (i.e. you paid the money). After you apply you cannot change what you assigned (e.g. remove L2 from program1 or remove L4 from program2 and program3) but you can add a forth letter to program1 or program2 and you can add another 2 letters to program3. That is because the maximum number you can assign at any point is 4 letters.
If you have not applied yet, you are free to change however you want (change ,remove).

Hope that helps.
