Default Family med dilemma

I'm kinda in a bit of dilemma that I hope people here can answer. So far I've been struggling to get new LORs. I have one letter dated in 2011 and after many failed attempts of contacting my attending, I might have to be stuck with it. I've contacted another family physician I worked with but unfortunately he's on vacation until August 28th. So I may not get the LOR by September 15th. So my question is in case I don't get the LOR uploaded in time, should I apply on September 15th right away without the letter? Can I still add the letter to the application after applying? Should I use some other letters I already have instead, including this 2011 letter?
