if your college uses the ecfmg web portal, then you need to contact the person who manages it, as soon as your status gets verified from your college, you should get the permit within a day or two.

It is your college that is holding up ur verification process. U need to contact ur college official(s) who deal with these issues, and keep bugging them until the verification is done. Once they verify ur status, u'll be issued a scheduling permit in 3-4 days.

well the same sort of thing happened to me. Your verification should already be pending. You need to ask the person in charge of the web portal to login to the emswp account and then check the pending verification. Emails usually get ignored and arent used to verify but just to notify.

Rule of thumb..if an ECFMG official says one thing and an official at a pakistani college says another, always believe the ECFMG version until proven otherwise. I faced the same problem as u, and my college officials kept telling me different stories, all of which proved to be lies. Eventually, they verified my status 20 days AFTER the start of my eligibility period. ECFMG does actually send a reminder e-mail to the medical school every week until the verification is done.

The email is just a reminder and nothing else. Ask ur college official to log into their EMSWP account on the ECFMG website and answer any pending verification requests. If possible, ask the person to do it in front of u. Only that way can u be sure that it has been done.

Don't worry, it should be sorted out soon. Call ECFMG to find out the current status of ur verification. Also explain to them ur problem and ask what can be done in this regard. I'm sure they can re-send the verification request if required.

I totally understand you!! This exact thing is happening to me, ECFMG keeps saying that they ARE sending weekly e-mails, but my school says that they havenīt received anything and that is propably another area of the school, the problem is that the school "doesnīt even know" what othar area is. This is so frustrating I am so ready to take the steps...

I have your same problem now I've been waiting for the verification for more than 4 weeks, it's for my CS exam.. weeks are passing and no places left for me in January.
Same what happened with you I went to my school officials and they told me that they haven't got any request regarding my name, called ecfmg they told me that request is sent and I have to talk to my school officials.
I really don't know what to do please can you tell me if you had your verification done or not what did you do ?
