you can upload new lor at any time.
when program updates from ecfmg them receive whole packet .they cannot be selective while updating from ecfmg.
you can also cancel your previous lor and assign new one.but at any time you cannot assign more than four lor.all lor will remain in your file. so if you assign four lor and than you have a another lor ,you can cancel one lor and assign new one. when program downloads updates from ecfmg they will receive your lor .you will have five lor in your file.alternatively you can assign only three lor to begin with and upload forth one as and when you receive it. some programs asks for only three lor.
I have done this in past.
additional advantage would be you will remain in contact with the program,this is important.when you upload new lor also email pd and pc.

I have been a psych resident, but my positive evaluation letter has been removed and replaced with a negative one and I was kicked out off the program just because they do not like my accent. IMGs! Be really really careful about which program you go to!! otherswise your whole future will be ruined.

It's U of Arizona. My whole life has been ruined. I have been out of residnecy for 3 years doing something just to survive. Totally hopeless. Once I appealed their decision. All the retaliation set in. No justice at all there.
