Form Form 183/186 mismanagement by ECFMG??

Hello all.
I am a medical school student from India. i finished my final professional year of M.B.B.S. in august 2011 and currently i am doing my will be finishing my internship in September 2012. As you all must be aware that if you are an intern, you are still considered to be a student according to the ECFMG. I applied for USMLE step 1 and the Eligibility period i chose was September 2012 to November 2012. as the application got done..the form that was generated was form 186 with "STUDENT" typed on it in bold letters.
furthermore the form 186 generated needs my medical school Dean's Signature. as far as i know from the forums and all, if you are a student u get form 183. so i am worried if everything is correct with my application.
any suggestions/comments???
