Registration Chose the wrong option when applied?

Hi everyone

I did the application for step 2 CS last Friday, and I realized I put the wrong option on the item 22. This item talk about status of medical school and gives you three options. I was with many thing in my head that day, obviously distracted. I put the second option, the one who says:

-I have graduated from medical school. I have a valid Certification of identification(Form 186) on file, and I am submitting the IWA Document Submission Form (Form 187); the ECFMG Medical Education Credentials Submission Form (Form 344); two copies of the Medical School Release Request (Form 345); two photocopies of my medical diploma with an English translation (if required). and a photograph.

I think I should have to put the option one:

-I have graduated from medical school and have previously submitted to ECFMG photocopies of my medical diploma.

Because I took step 1. I have the form186 approved, and already sent forms 187,344,345...all the papers.
What should I do??? Because I already paid . Can my application be rejected? Am I going to lose that money???

Some one help me, Please!!!

Thank you!

Call the ECFMG tomorrow morning and inform them of your mistake and they'll be able to reset your application and allow to apply again and you won't be losing the money.
