Idea! Electives and LORs after september 15th

If I get to do some observership/externship after sep.15 (the day when I will be applying for programs) and my other LORs would already have been uploaded by then. And if get a place of observership after that, eg. around October-november. Can I again upload the LOR given by the faculty where I did observership? Will that help in any way for match 2014? Didnot find in ERAS website when is the last date to upload LORs.
Any help would be appreciated.
I am new in forum.

Yes. You can upload your new LoR later in November but the problem is that most residency programs would have download all applications by then and have made their decisions regarding whom to send for an interview.

Therefore, your new LoRs may not help you in getting further interviews but they can help enhance your profile for the interviews that you already got.

One thing you can do, is that you can mention in your Personal Statement that you are going to do further USCE in the coming months, that will help.
