Certificate MSPE vs Dean's Letter

Does anyone have any information about the benefits of MSPE over the dean's letter?

I am an fmg from and Indian College and I am guessing it will be very difficult to have the administrators draft an MSPE.

If anyone has a template or an example that they are willing to share that would be very helpful.

Thank you.
