Mail Documents Delay; Can I push to next Eligibility Period!

Hello people

I have applied for my STEP 1 and have sent all the documents(all documents that a grad has to send) to the ECFMG on

The 15th of may. it was sent from my college in Russia. I had opted for jul-aug-sept slot. but the ECFMG has not yet received them. it was sent through regular mail. so the option of tracking it is out of question. But i came to know it usually takes 2 months for regular mail to reach the u.s from Russia. my doubts,
1) by what time should the documents reach ECFMG?
2) will it be possible for me to extend my eligibility period now? ( since the college closes for vacations during jul-aug) ?

thank u for ur replies

Try reading this thread: Extension of Eligibility Period Step by Step?

Hope that helps

If not, use "Search" option in the right upper corner of your screen e.g. "extension" etc.

no casandra. i want to know whether,

1)extension(oct-nov-dec) is possible only after my 186 is verified and they send me a permit for my present elig.period?(which will not happen till my documents reach ECFMG)

or can i extend my eligibility period in july w/o a permit for my present elig.period(jul-aug-sept)

also what happens if my application reaches them in august ( hypothetically) ?

I'm sure at least one member of this forum had a similar question before. SEARCH THREADS!

Also... Search for it in ECFMG Booklet. If for some reason you can't find it and no one here responds to your question, just call ECFMG - in 2-3 minutes all your doubts will disappear

You could just put in a fresh application and send it through Fedex this time. Starting a new application would cancel the old one and credit the fee back to your ECFMG account. thats what one of my seniors did. But I think you need to do it before your eligibility period starts.

Once you schedule 3 months eligibility period your 186 form has to reach within 1st weeks of your eligebility period if it reaches later you'll be allotted your eligibility period from the next month your Form186 reaches.. That is if u apply for jul-aug-sep and form183 reaches late in july then you ll be given aug-sep-oct eligibility period. I had read it in ecfmg brochure. The info is given in that, cross check to confirm.

186 form has to reach them not later than 12months after submitting online application.. Correct me if I'm wrong..
