Question LOR more than 3 years ago

I have been considering to go to the US for an observership this summer holiday in order to get a LOR. However, if I choose to do an observership this year, the LOR will be more than 3 years old by the time I graduate.

The desirable timeframe for a LOR would be less than 2 years. Considering I may not apply for match immediately after I graduate and I could be applying 1 or 2 years after I graduate. Taking this in to consideration, the LOR would be at least 3 years old if not more if I choose to do an observership this summer holiday. Will a LOR obtained more than 3 years ago be helpful in getting interview offers/subsequent match or I will be better off to save the money and do an observership at a later date.

Thanks for answering

one thing you can do is when u apply for match ask your Lor writer to reissue a new Lor with latest dates.

Default LOR

That LOR is too old. You can do what the other forum user suggested by trying to get them to reissue it. Can you get a more recent LOR??
