Calendar Apply on Sept 15 or Oct 1 with US LOR?

223 step 1/ 211 ck/cs pass all 1st attempt/GC/ YOG 2009/ ECFMG Certified/ Will get PTAL before sept 15/ USCE Observership 1 month starting aug 26 in private clinic (from UCSF associate Professor)

I have 3 home country LOR and basically my application is complete, but I will get the US-LOR on Sept 20 after observership, which will take 2 weeks to upload in ERAS.

So should I apply in Sept 15 and ask programs to download my LOR later?
OR should I apply in Oct 1 with the US LOR ?

I am applying to 120 IM programs and 80 FM programs... can you please tell me what are my chances? Will it affect my chances if i apply in oct 1?

Any feedback will be highly appreciated... thanx!
