I had faced the same problem before taking my step 1 exam.
'Waiting for verification of status from your med school' and
'Medical education credentials received n verification pending'
are two different things. Your medical school needs to verify ur STATUS (whether u're a student or a graduate) before u can sit for the exam. If ur school participates in ECFMG Medical School Web Portal(EMSWP), verification of status is just a matter of minutes. The authorized official will need to log in to the school's EMSWP account on the ECFMG website and simply make a few clicks. Once they have verified ur status, u'll be issued ur Scheduling Permit within 3-4 days, and then u can book ur exam date.

Verification of medical credentials (diploma/degree) is a requirement for the ECFMG certificate that one is issued after completing step 1, CK and CS. U don't need it to sit for the exam.

I think u should start bugging ur medical school officials until they verify ur status. Don't just sit and wait.

Another thing, don't believe ur med school ppl if they say that they've verified ur status until it actually says so on OASIS. My school's Director of Students' Affairs kept telling me for 2 weeks on the fone that he had already done it and that there might be some problem at ECFMG's end. Eventually, i had to travel and go meet him in person to finally get it done (my med school is in a different city).

And thanx. I'm doing the same thing as u, just a step ahead.
