Default Validity of LOR

Hello! I am an IMG! I just completed my USCEs. Is there a specific number of years upto which the LOR is valid? ln other words, will my LOR be of any value if i am planning to apply 3 years from now?

Thank you!

typically they look at gaps in your clinical knowledge

I'm sure a LOR will still be valid but it is good to show there are no gaps bc they will ask you and showing something from 3 years ago when you haven't done anything else since will not be a good sign
