Default Fedex pickup for your form 327-A from ECFMG

I just spoke to Ecfmg representative regarding wether I can arrange for fedex pickup for my 327-A to be sent to my college...
he said - i need to send an authorization letter with my signature and fedex 9 digit account number for them to be able to send form 327-a to school using fedex

note - if you call fedex customer care , they tell you that you have to send a pre-paid shipping label to ecfmg for them to be able to use your account, but there is no need of it as ECFMG is a fedex account holder and you just need to give them your account number.

Default Form 327- A

I am an IMG and have cleared my step 1 in 2015 and 2 Ckin 2016 . I recently found out that my Form 327A have been sent to my college in June 2016 but haven't been verified yet. As my college have no idea about the USMLE process I suppose I'll have to go and ask them to reply to that. The ECFMG website says that the verification can be done electronically. Any idea about that?

Any input on the matter will be appreciated.

Hi Praru ,
I read your post . Even I would be doing the same. Wrt to the electronic verification , the college needs to open EMSWP account with ECFMG , which i guess could be difficult to convince your college to do since they don't have idea about the USMLE process. I am in a similar situation where my med school is not on EMSWP and alien to the USMLE process.
Were you able to get the credentials verified using FedEx ? I was wondering when and which email id I have to send the Authorisation letter ??

Thanks

Hi Neutrino,

I mailed to info@ecfmg.org stating my problem and asked them to resend the document. They advised me to write a formal letter requesting to resend the documents to my school mentioning my ECFMG id , a courier service name (through which I want them to send my document ) and my handwritten signature and fax that letter to the same address. I did as they told, used a FedEx account no of a friend of mine in US and now I am waiting for them to resend the document.

Hi , can someone help me with this? I just spoke to an ecfmg representative regarding FedEx for my form 327 a. She said that it can only be done if the initial attempt failed i.e if after 90 days the medical school still hasnt received it

So it can't be done for the first time ecfmg sends it?
Thanks
