Communication Calling ECFMG

If you are calling the ECFMG nowadays you'll get this message
Sorry we are very busy because of the high volume of ERAS applicants
Thank you for understanding
Please call later

Here's the trick;

If you call again immediately after it, you won't get that message and you will be in the queue

Final medical transcript is specified by your college and it differs from school to school. The ECFMG will contact your school and ask them for the transcript. You should follow with your college. Am sure your college has done it for previous students and they should do exactly the same for you so that the ECFMG clerk does not develop any suspicious thoughts if he/she sees any difference from previous transcripts.
