Can I submit my applications before receiving all my letters of recommendation?

Hi! I'm waiting on one other recommender to submit their letter, but would like to submit my application. I know for graduate school, they allow you to submit your application before having all your LoRs on file. Does LSAC do the same thing? Or should I wait for the last letter to be uploaded?
Thank you! :)

    You could submit all your applications but the school will just keep your application on file and "incomplete" until all of your LORs are in! So I'd honestly just wait to save yourself the back and forth communication from all the schools about incomplete application.

    i dont think so because you have to assign letters to each application. i know grad schools let you pay, submit your application and then continue working on supporting documents until the deadline but for LSAC im pretty sure you just submit everything as one package.

    You can submit even if if your LORs haven't been uploaded yet. I previously called LSAC about this. You can assign the LOR/recommender to a school; then hit submit. Your application will be marked incomplete with the school, but once the letter is uploaded, LSAC will send it over.
