Fire Thread NYSED Eligibility Letter

I just came across a document stating that the good standing letter from the school you are currently enrolled must indicate:
(1) you are currently enrolled in good standing;
(2) your date of graduation;
(3) you have been authorized to perform clerkships in New York State;
(4) the dates for which you are authorized

to perform clerkships in New York State;
(5) academic credit will be granted for the clerkship(s) and
(6) teaching hospital in which the clerkship(s) will be performed

1st and 2nd point are usually mentioned in the deans letter required by every elective application.
But is it necessary to specifically mention that you are allowed to do elective in "NEW YORK STATE" ; the dates for which you have been granted the clerkship and the hospital in which you have been granted the clerkship??

I request anyone who has already received letter of eligibility or anyone who knows more about this to please confirm..

Thanks

Yes. I did not do electives in NY but they are very specific about it cause of the 12 week rule (some foreign schools consider US electives as a part of the final year curriculum and consider it while issuing the diploma. If this is the case with your school and you do more than 12 weeks of electives, you are not eligible to apply for residency in NY). So its best to be very specific and get what they ask.

Thank you for your reply.

There was one more thing that I wasn't sure about:

Supposedly you get 1 elective in NY say during Jan 2017 and apply for Letter of eligibility(12 weeks rotation or less) from NYSED today that is in July 2016
And after about a month that is in August 2016 you get another elective approved in NY for Feb 2017 then would you require another Letter of eligibility or will the same letter be valid ?

I am afraid I have no clue as I did not do electives in ny but I am guessing you will probably have to send another letter.
