Question can you take a step BEFORE verification of credentials

Hi!

i've been reading through a lot of similar topics, and got confused with different info.

so i'd like to ask 2 questions:
1) is it possible to take step 1 or step 2 ck BEFORE or WHILE WAITING for verification of medical education credentials?

2) my school sent the verification of my credentials through regular mail (which takes MONTHS in our country), can i ask them to resend it through Fedex again so i can track it?

thanks!

1) Yes, you can. Your job is considered done when you send your credentials to ecfmg, so you will be able to give exams & get your scores.

2) You can but I would suggest you to wait n see if what they've sent has reached ecfmg or not.

Well yeah you will be. Since you have already submitted your credentials, you don't need to send anything again. However, If your medical school participates in EMSWP, they will have to verify your status online before you can receive your scheduling permit.

I'd suggest you to give a call to ECFMG & ask what exactly is going on. If your medical school didn't receive anything till now, chances are that it got lost in the mail.

my medical school doesn't participate in ECFMG web portal and is it necessary to have my medical credentials verified before appearing in USMLE exams I fear if that happens then my medical school wouldn't reply to ECFMG even in 3 months extended eligibility period and I would loose money that I paid for exam I am worried
