hi there. just to give you a view/insight on how long it takes to process the identification form:

I sent my certificate of identification form on May 2, 2011 via DHL. ECFMG received it on May 4. At this time, they updated the status on my OASIS to: "received and undergoing processing." Also they will let you know this via your email.

On May 16, I was informed via email that my identification form has been ACCEPTED (meaning no issues nor problems). This was reflected also on my OASIS as ACCEPTED.

On May 18, I was told I was registered to the eligibility period of my choice, that is, October to December, 2011

On May 20, they gave me my scheduling permit. It can be accessed using IWA. Also on the same date, they sent the form 327A to my school requesting for verification of credentials. I also received via postal mail a letter saying that they sent that form to my school. Just check your OASIS from time to time because everything there is updated

So yeah, its as fast as that so no worries. I think the only thing that will slow things a bit is how long your medical school responds. In my case, my school took about a month to process things. So for now, I'm praying things will go smoothly again the way they did with my form 186.

When you learn that ECFMG sends the request form 327A (verication of diploma and request for original transcript), make sure you keep in touch with your medical school so they process it right away.

I hope this helps. God bless

Yes, they will give you your scheduling permit even before the form 327 is done. I don't think they will cancel your permit. One of the forums staff here recently mentioned that once they give you your permit, you can go and take the exam, no need to wait for verification of credentials.

Goodluck. I hope it turns out well for you, too

Not yet, because they still take more time to confirm it. After around two weeks, they will inform you if it was accepted.

Im not sure what will happen if there are issues but as I have read from other threads, ECFMG will tell you "right away" if there are problems with your form 186
