Question How long does ECFMG take to respond to e-mail queries?

for those of you who have contacted the ECFMG with e-mail questions in the past, how long did it take for you to get a response?

The automated response system tells you to expect an answer in approx 5 days but I asked some questions about transferred credits and have not received any answers for 10 business days now...

The unnerving thing is that they urge you to "refrain from submitting duplicate e-mails, as this will only further delay our response to your message."

So, how quickly did you get your response?

Never emailed them. But they help promptly when you call. You'd better call them too.
