Question Form 186 accepted. What next ?

My Form 186 has been accepted.
1) What happens next ? (I know the next step is credential verification, but how exactly does that happen) My school participates in EMSWP.
2) After my school verifies my credentials, how long will it take for ECFMG to process my application for Step 1 ?
3) I have requested for the April-May-June block? Will I be able to get that same block because the ECFMG USMLE Application processing will anyhow be done only by April ?

The ECFMG will not wait until your credentials verification. They'll soon send you a scheduling permit that you can use to book a date at the Prometric website.

For more information read here
Medical education credentials verification and scheduling permit

As long as your school participates in the EMSWP, then the ECFMG will contact your school electronically for your credentials, a process which should not take more than three weeks. You might want to contact your school's USMLE office and see if they have some extra information for you.

Default Verifying Certificate of Identification & Verifying Credentials.

I understand that verifying Certificate of identification (186) is the step after Acceptance of the 186.
& Verifying Credentials is a totally different process
Am I right ?
If so, how long after verifying 186 will I receive my scheduling permit.
Where & how do I obtain my scheduling permit? Is it a downloadable document ?

I might sound clueless,but that is what I am presently .....

Default Thanks

Thanks StepTaker, I just saw my Oasis & they said they have sent it to my address ... so I guess it might take 2 weeks to reach here (the standard time for snail mail from the US to reach here).
Now, for the final verification will they contact my school or will they e-mail me also (it will be easy to follow up with my school)............. How long does it take ? (please note : My school participates in EMSWP.)
