Letter of Rec after completed at most schools?

So I'm in a weird spot. My PI has offered to write a letter of Rec for me. He is a very well known surgeon at a large academic center on the east coast and I'm unsure if sending in a letter after being completed at most school will even be noticed or cause me to have to be Re-reviewed. Not too sure what that process is, but would love some advice.

What did you end up doing? I'm curious bc I just submitted my first handful of schools early last week and was complete but just got my volunteer director's letter which I would really like to be considered at all schools, not just where I'm yet to submit

As long as the director was included as the contact person in your primary application, there is little to be gained from an LoE.
