If there's a fourth slot remaining under these programs then yes you can upload the new LoR but if you have already uploaded 4 LoRs then you cannot do anything about it now because this year there is new policy, read about it here

Yes, i left 1 LOR place for all those programs but i was wondering since they have already downloaded my application, will they go back and check the new LOR?

I added my 4th LOR last night and 65/140 programs have already downloaded it. What I want to know is, does this mean they have already seen my LOR or do i need to call them so they attach it to my application ?

Can you please explain what you mean by chair of medicine LOR, and how do you find out that they require LOR from chair of medicine?
