Help Signing Credentials For Verification

Hi all,

At last, my school called me saying they recieved a "letter" from the ECFMG asking them to verify the enclosed documents! It's been about a year since I sent my diploma, and ECFMG sent those papers about 4 times!


Now comes the problem, my school informed they have PRINTED the vice dean's name (Dr. A) on the papers, for he's the one authorised to be signing such papers and the ECFMG know him..they told we will inform you of the progress. A few days ago they called, saying that Dr. A has decided to resign to pursue another post in the school, and that he won't sign anymore school papers, so they signed it from a temporary vice dean, (Dr. H), till they elect the new vice dean..and they stamped the papers by the school's seal.

I went mad and ran to my school when I heard this, now my papers have a signature that is different from the printed name, I told them to deal with this. They said that they already sent Dr. H's name to ECFMG so that they know he's now authorised instead of Dr. A, I nearly cried that this would take ages, and also, it doesn't explain why Dr. A's name was printed on the papers in the 1st place..even if the papers have the school's seal..

At last, my school had pity on me, and told me that they will try to convince Dr. A of the severity of the situation, and may be he will agree to sign those papers..

Now I am waiting for them to call, but I keep thinking, isn't having TWO signatures and ONE printed name, wrong?

What do you think, guys? Sorry for the long post..

Hi again,

I called my school again today, they said that the old vice dean refused to sign any papers
Now here is the situation, I have my papers at my school signed by someone but the print is someone else's name, my school told me they already sent ECFMG to tell them about the new vice dean, but WHY WHY would they PRINT another person's name if the one supposed to sign is someone else?

My school still didn't send the papers, I am asking you guys, please advise me! That forum never let me down before and I really need your help now!

Your school should send a letter to ECFMG explaining the whole situation.

This is the only way I can see your long-standing problem solved.

Sorry to hear your story.

Thanks a lot for your reply, you restored my idea of the forums..
I called my school today and asked them to send something to inform the ECFMG of the situation, they spoke simply, saying they already did that..

I REALLY hope that works, It already took one year for my school to reply!

Hi again,

A change happened today that I don't know what it means, but I am really woried about it.

My school informed that they sent everything to ECFMG on October 2nd and that they checked the courier, everything was recieved. I know its not expected to see any change in OASIS for at least 8 weeks, but I don't know why I decided to check it today, I found that the date in that table of "Last Documents Sent On.." has changed, it now says that ECFMG sent form 327A to my school on the 14th of October! So what does this mean? Did my school do something wrong with the papers or weren't the papers recieved in the 1st place??!

Guys please help me, I am really freaking out and my school are taking ages to reply! Tell me anything!
