Theres no harm in assigning it when it becomes available. Atleast some if not all programs will download your 4th LOR

you must check the program website whether they specifically require you to submit exactly 3 or at least 3. some programs only request for 2. If they say at least 3 then you can submit a 4th LOR but if the website indicates they require 3 then submit only 3. I'm not so sure with 2 LORs. I tried to submit 3 LORs even for those progs which require only 2 LORs.
