I have already been verified and submitted most of my 25 secondaries in mid-September. A professor from this semester asked me if I would like a letter of recommendation from him. Since I only included three letters I think it sounds like a good idea.

At this point is going through AMCAS and adding a letter the best way to do this or would having him send the letter directly to a few select schools be better? I am wondering if I go through AMCAS at this point later in the cycle, if schools will take notice of the new letter vs having it sent directly to them.

Thank for any input.

+1 I'm wondering the same thing myself.

I'd also like to know this.

Once primary apps are submitted, is it too late to add any LORs, or is there a window at all?
