Unhappy Still no status change in my OASIS

hi everyone..

I know this question must have been posted a lot of times on the forum ...but I am soo worried ..and so I am hoping someone here would be able to guide me.

I paid the fees online at ECFMG on 1 may..on 7th June ECFMG had received my documents as confirmed by Aramex...but still there is no email, no mail from ECFMG and no status change on oasis..to add to my dilemma..my college is not picking up my calls and I know that in exactly 4 weeks the college closes for the summer vacation till the end of August!!!!!....

Since I was preparing quite some time for my step exam...I dont want to delay it all the way into Sept Oct!!..not to mention that my eligibility period which I chose as July-Aug-Sept would be over by then!!

What to do?? am so confused!!!

If i were u i would call ecfmg not oasis and find out what is going on. If u have a number that ECFMG sent u it will be easy..They r very helpful and will pull out your file..

Good luck

Arrow You have to wait until August 11th 2011.

Delay in verifying your Form 186 and change of your "certificate of identification status" is expected from the ECFMG. Check this http://www.usmle-forums.com/ecfmg-fo...edentials.html for example.

You don't need to worry about it until it's six weeks since the date they received it, that will be August 11th.

They'll send you the email at the time your status changes in OASIS.

It's recommended that you start your registration at least 3 months before the intended eligibility period. For more information read here http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-st...-step-1-a.html
