I am on hold at my #1 choice as well. I stopped by the admissions office and handed in a LOCI including my commitment to attend if accepted as well as an updated resume (the only thing different is a little extra volunteering) and I am having 3 new reccomenders write me new LOR's specifically tailored to the school. Good Luck! (and if anyone has any additional advice, it is greatly appreciated!)
3 new LORs might be going overboard.
The timing is spaced out quite a bit.
Does that matter?
I wouldn't think so. I think that schools probably mean it when they set a limit on LORs, regardless of how long a period they are spread over. I actually read an interview with I think it was the dean of Boalt where he said basically that they don't even read them if you send too many and that it might actually hurt you.
