Registration online application rejected!!

hi,
i would be extremely thankful to you if you answer my inquiry:

My online application for step (1) was rejected today i checked it in OASIS
but i dont know why!!
But my certification of identification form has been accepted two days ago.
I checked my email and i dont found any letter about the reason of on line application rejection.
Does the ECFMG send the explanation and where can i found it?
and what do you think the usual reasons about rejection?
thank you

Default Common reasons the ECFMG rejects the application

Common reasons:

- You did not finish your basic sciences courses yet.
- Your college is not listed in IMED
- Your college made a mistake in their reply to ECFMG
- You made mistake in the number of years or some other important data when you answered the questions.
- Your credit card was rejected
- You re-applied again using a new USMLE ID (while you had one before)

ECFMG usually send an email of why your application was rejected. If you did not get that, I suggest you call them first thing in the morning tomorrow.

Do not get embarrassed when you talk to the ECFMG representative.

Keep asking until you understand what they are saying. If you are not sure what they are saying, say "Sorry, I did not get that".

You have to understand in details what is the problem. When know what's the problem, ask them what should I do next?

Should you apply online again? should you fax them some information? ...etc

Default hello


HELLO ALL


I just recieved this email from ECFMG


August 10, 2011


Dear Doctor,

Please be advised that ECFMG® has received a copy of a medical diploma from the( ) University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences along with your Certification of Identification (Form 186) on July 7, 2011. However, because ECFMG does not have a sample copy of the final diploma awarded by your medical school in our reference files, we are unable to determine if the document you submitted is the official final diploma issued by your university.

Consequently, we ask that you contact your medical school to provide a sample copy of the final medical school diploma to ECFMG. The sample copy must accompany a letter signed by a Medical School Official (Dean, Vice Dean, or Registrar) on the school’s letterhead indicating that the attached sample copy is the official final medical school diploma issued by your university and that this document would allow the holder to seek medical licensure in ****. We also ask that the letter states the first year this diploma design was awarded.

ECFMG must receive this letter by mail to confirm that it was posted from the medical school. We cannot accept this letter by fax. This letter can be mailed to my attention at the following address:

ECFMG
**************
This letter may also be sent via email in PDF format to the email address, info@ecfmg.org. Please ensure that if your school sends this document via email that they place “Attention ****” in the subject line so that I receive their correspondence without delay.

Finally, if your medical school sends the aforementioned document via email, please ensure that the medical school official sends the email from his email account at the medical school so ECFMG can determine this document came directly from the school.

Sincerely,
Credentials@ecfmg.org
************************************************** ******************
So there is one point
My final medical school diploma is not in english and I

accompanied it by an English translation when I sent my paper with 186 form.
So should I sent the diploma and the english translation to my university and they forward it to ECFMG(I reside in another country from which I graduated) or should my university issued the new diploma with english language and send it?
