Unhappy Submitted forms for CS in May 11 and still nothing!


I submitted forms for CS in May 11 and there is no update from ECFMG . I was browsing through the forums and saw that at the most it has taken 4-5 months to get verification of credentials from ECFMG (to allow for paying the fee) .

I need suggestions on what should i do ? I was also reading that u got to limit your inquiries to ECFMG (one big reason that i have been avoiding to shoot an email or call them) .

When i submitted the forms in May , OASIS showed July 27th of 2011 as the date till when the credentials would be valid. Feb 2012 was the date for the validity of scores (Step 2 CK taken in Nov 05). I would also like to know if there is a chance that i might have to retake all steps.

First of all your USMLE Scores are valid for seven years. What you have seen in OASIS is the date until which you can download the score report, after which they'll remove score report but you USMLE will continue to be valid for seven years.

Second, there's no such things as to limit inquiries, you can email them and call them 10 times a day, there's no problem.

Third, I don't understand what are you waiting for. What is your Form 186 status and what is your credentials status (both you can see in OASIS).
