I will be applying this coming cycle and had a quick question regarding when I need to have my LOR by.
I plan on submitting my primaries the first week of May. I understand there is some processing time (apparently around 2 weeks) before I start receiving my secondaries.

I am going to be emailing my LOR writers soon and need to know when I should tell them to have it done by? Would June 1st be an appropriate deadline?

I was thinking of asking for the letters the first week of May (the same time when I submit my primaries) but my friend said that isn't necessary.

Essentially, submitting your primary is important, and I was wondering if I submitted by LOR around June (but my primaries were submitted the first week of May) if that would cause my application to be delayed?
