Wait until September 10 or mention is in PS

They are currently scanning LoRs received on August 13th.
This means that your LoR will be scanned into ERAS most probably by September 10th.
I'd say wait until that date and then apply.

Another option is to mention your two USCEs in your personal statement, this the programs will know that you have done those experiences and they'll ask you to bring the LoRs to the IV and they understand the long queue in the ERAS scanning.

Answer to a)
I don't think you lose many chances. Most programs do not finish their short-listing job before September 15 or even 20.

Answer to b)
Yes, that's true. Many PDs do not actually read the application and documents thoroughly until the interview day or just few minutes before you enter the IV room :)
