Mail ECFMG Emails One After the Other

Email received on April, 5.
Dear Doctor:

We are pleased to confirm that the On-Line part of your USMLE Step 1 application (Application Identification Code xxxxxx) has been received by ECFMG. Your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number is listed in the Subject line of this message. You must use this number in all communications with ECFMG.

I received this email on April, 18. Dear Doctor:

We are pleased to confirm that your Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) has been received by ECFMG. Your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number is listed in the Subject line of this message. You must use this number in all communications with ECFMG.

ECFMG typically processes on-line USMLE applications within 3 weeks of receipt of both the on-line part and the Certification of Identification Form (Form 186). You may track the status of your application by using ECFMG's On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS). Access OASIS on the ECFMG website at oasis.ecfmg.org.


Received on 05/03/2012
Dear Doctor:

Your Certification of Identification Form submitted 04/04/2012 has been accepted. This form will remain on file and be valid for a period of five years. The validity dates are as follows: 05/03/2012 through 05/03/2017.

The Certification of Identification Form is processed independently of the on-line application. Acceptance of the Certification of Identification Form does not automatically guarantee acceptance of the application. Once your application has been reviewed, ECFMG will notify you of the outcome of your application.

ECFMG typically processes on-line applications within three weeks of the receipt of both the on-line part and the Certification of Identification Form. Processing will now continue on the on-line part of your application.

In the website it says they are waiting for my school to verify the credentials. I can't select an exam date until then, right?

Yup, that's correct.. But you have to tell your school to log into their EMSWP account & verify you.. You will get your scheduling permit instantly when it's done!

I sent them an email but they did not respond. I think I will have to make the long distance call or tell my Dad to call them.

I am going to bring up this post so I won't be making another thread...

I also got that latest email saying:
"ECFMG typically processes on-line applications within three weeks of the receipt of both the on-line part and the Certification of Identification Form. Processing will now continue on the on-line part of your application." So my Form 186 is now valid.

And then on my OASIS Step 1 application it said that it's pending verification of my credentials from my school. So I called up my school and informed them about this. But they told me that ECFMG was going to e-mail me saying that they have already sent my forms back to my school for verification and that is when my school will be addressing my issue (Re: verification). But I read on some threads that the initial validation of schools will be just by logging on to their account and validating me so I can at least get my testing permit.

My question now is: Does ECFMG really send you an e-mail saying that they've sent back your papers to your school for verification? I'm also quite worried that my forms could have been already sent back to my school but got lost somewhere.

Thanks for the help!

^Up

Can anyone confirm if ECFMG sends an email once they send your papers back to your school? X'mas break is in a few days and the guy from my school said to only call him back once I get that email from ECFMG.

Thanks!

Hey, According to ECFMG, it takes them 5 - 10 days to update their system after they received your documents. My documents were received by ECFMG on 27th october (according to UPS) , But the system didn't have it updated till Nov 5th. So just wait it out.. do you have a way to track your documents ? contact your school they will provide you with a tracking number, my school did.

Since your online and form 183 are not yet processed, i think they will give u a extension, happened to me. and not to scare u for anything, but they rejected mine, since i put the wrong date for my transfer school. (so dumb of me) but i filled the form again correctly the same day and now its "in process"
