Certificate Dean's letter; 4 questions about it

1: Regarding the deans letter, is there any specific format that is to follow?
If present please send me the link.

2: I have a deans letter that was signed by the old dean, 2 years ago. (the one who was the dean at time of my grad). will it work now or should i get a new one from the current dean?

3: should the dean's letter be sealed, or it can be open

4: is it compulsory to mention my AAMC ID no in it, & if yes where in the letter??

Thanks a heap in advance.

I think Deans's letter from your old Dean will be sufficient. I am not sure if AAMC id has to mentioned compulsorily or not.

There are no rules about the Dean Letter.

It can be of any shape or format, the more details it tells about your performance in med school the more impact it will have.

You can use the old one, it does not have to be up-to-date.

The AAMC ID is not mandatory, you can write it with a pen at the upper part of the letter if you wish.

Yes. it should be sealed by the official dean office.

PS- Important point; dean letter (although required by most residency programs) it does not really have a great impact on your matching chances.
