I have 3 other letters advocating for me as a neurology applicant. But I also have another potential 4th letter advocating me for neurosurgery (i wasn't sure what I would go into until recently). I will be applying to neurology.

Would having this NSurg letter hurt my application or could it help? Appreciate any feedback.

I don't remember if ERAS allows 3 LORs or 4 LORs. If it's just 3, then leave the neurosurgery one out, especially if the other ones are neurology letters. If you can have 4, then why not?

It allows 4 letters. I just don't know if they will question my commitment, if the other letter is written for neurosurgery...

Any chance you could ask the neurosurgeon to change it so it's more appropriate for neuro? It might look weird if it's aimed toward neurosurg...
