Default apply for California letter every single year?

If I got California letter but unmatched this year, will I have to apply for it all over again if I want to apply for matching next year? Even the transcripts from med school in my home country. Thanks.

i have no experience with the California letter, but i seriously doubt that you'll have to apply for it every single year...i believe its more like ecfmg certification, once u got it, u r done.

Ummm no shahzaib123456, its NOT like the ECFMG cert.

Yes you do have to apply every year, its only valid for 1 yr. My spouse applied, and it states on there.

You cant get without a SS#, its mandatory.
