Default ?

Did your school send them via regular mail or companies like FedEx, DHL?

With the second option you can track the package and with FedEx I always even get the name of the person who signed the confirmation that they received the package. So when you call ECFMG you can give them the name and they can check it.

Then ask the person who was sending it at your school and if it was indeed regular mail ask them to resend it.
When are you planning to take your exam?

You can wait few more weeks, maybe the delivery is just delayed but...
but if it got lost in the mail or something what else can you do other than resend it...?

Post if u can

my honest advice,
pay your school extra-cash to re-send the papers via DHL, FEDEX or aramex....so u can have tracking number....regular mail sucks and it takes ages......

Something like that happened to me. I called my uni and they gave me the tracking number of the package they sent . When I checked, the package was fully delivered.

if the university sent through regular mail then you have to wait. if it was some courier service then ask for the tracking number from them.

Default FedEx or speedpost

I'm from India.

Can I send via speedpost.. They say it ll reach by 10-12 days..


Or FedEx reaches in 5-6days but costly..

I'm applying for October -December eligibility period.. Owing to slow processing at my med school they'll be able to send in 5-6 days..


Help!! I don't want the scheduling to be delayed!!!
