Default Question regarding electronic LOR request

Hi Everyone !!!

I have sent electronic request for LOR. Does anyone know if it is needed to ask my letter writer to write my full name and AAMC id in the letter??? Or will it appear automatically?

I don't know if it does but I told my letter writer to include it, just in case.
Your full name should be in it anyway, I guess the AAMC ID # is optional but I told them to put it in.
