You can submit prior to them all being in, but the school won't review your app until it is "complete." However, the determination of "complete" is based on their requirement, not on what you put. So I have 4 LORs, submitted to UVA when only 3 were in and received a decision prior to the 4th being submitted. LSAC did send it on when it came in, but obviously it wouldn't have any sway since a decision had already been made. Almost all schools say they have the same policy -they consider the file complete when all required materials are in. The problem I could see arising is that some consider 1 LOR enough - unless your missing LORs are all submitted/processed by LSAC at roughly the same exact time, you might be evaluated by some schools before your 2nd comes in and that might impact the decision if a really strong LOR is missing I suppose.
