Default How early should I ask for LOR?

Hi all,

I have two questions:

1-How early can I ask a physician to submit a letter of recommendation to ERAS? I have a very prominent physician (FACS, FACC) who is willing to write me a very, very good letter right now.

2-257/248/CS first pass, 22 publications, 15 months USCE (Clinical Research and Outpatient care both)+ Harvard letter+ Cleveland Clinic Letter (X2).
I'm hoping to match in one of the good Texas programs.

How high should I aim regarding residency programs? (internal medicine)

Top 10% graduate from a foreign medical school. US Citizen.
