  It is better to have several LoRs from different programs. This shows Residency program Directors that you are willing to travel. This can benefit your application.

As long the LOR's are written by three different preceptors and they can write something different its all good.

  It depends. Who cares if you have 3 LORS from a large respected academic / university program? That would show that you spent time with different attendings and they probably liked you.

Now, if you have 3 different generic LORs form a private clinic or community center in the middle of nowhere, that only shows that you got what you paid for, basically LORs and they probably felt obligated to fulfill their part of the deal.

I don't know how, but make sure you don't get the same generic template from everyone. That would be a disaster.
