    I currently have 3 LORs submitted to all programs I applied to on ERAS. I would like to withdraw one of them, because I have two other LORs (which are stronger) that would like to submit to the programs but the maximum is 4.

    Is there anyway I can withdraw a LOR that has been submitted to a program?

    I doubt it, but you could give them a call.

    No, there is no way to do this. It used to be possible (so you may see some old threads) but was changed in ERAS a few years ago. Once you submit letters, that's it. And you only get 4.

    ERAS is an exercise in frustration. Keep in mind everything is done to make it easy for the program, not for the student. We should eliminate the match- go back to the way it used to be.

    Thanks for the reply. This sucks :( I should've thought twice about trying to get all my LOR in early
