Question Waiting for the 4th Most Important LoR


I guess most of u have seen that there are a lot of programs which require 3 LORS.
In my case, I have already 3 LORS but I do expect the 4th,and most important one, to be uploaded in 2 weeks time.

In this scenario, what would u suggest me?
1) To apply only with 2 LORS on Sept 15th and send them afterwards the last one ,or
2) To apply with the 3 that I have, and send them afterwards the 4th one? In this case, will they disregard the most recent they receive?, or
3) To apply later with the preferred LORS??

Thank u in advance and I hope to all of u Good Luck

3 LoRs is minimum but you can send up to 4 LoRs.

So send your 3 LoRs now and when the fourth becomes available you can send it to them.
