Registration Form 327-A resent to medical school for the 2nd time!

Hey all, I've been really frustrated .... my 327-A has been resent to my school for the 2nd time, again for the same reason that the seal does not match the sample ..... I've called ecfmg & it does'nt seem to be of much help ... Worse many others from my school whose forms have the same seal have had their 327-As accepted ....

What do I do now ? It will go back to my school and it will be stamped with the same seal and I risk rejection of the form for a third time .....

Could I ask my Vice-Dean to send a letter to ECFMG with a fascimile of the official college seal and request ECFMG to recognize it as the sample seal ? If so, to whom in the ECFMG should he address it to ? Is it possible for him to this ?
Any other valuable suggestions .....

Hey docgod, I can understand yr problem. I am going through similar problem. This is the second rejection of 372 A forms. First it was rejected because form was not sent by college officials; there was no problem with the seal. Now 2nd time ecfmg has rejected my 372 a form saying that there is no official seal. My med school says they have put the required stamp. Does ECFMG rejects form 372 A without any proper reasons? And does ECFMG have a record of our med school seal with them. How did they get this record? Is it form 186? I canít remember what was in Form 186, it was long time when it was send and accepted.
Hope we get through this problem. It is really frustrating... Thanks please reply guys.

Yes ECFMG has a record of the seals of every college and official.It has to match exactly with our application.If tha Medical school has changed there seal It has to be updated with ECFMG.
I too had same problem but with my form 186..
The seal was not matchin with there records.

I Updated the seal as said by ECFMG.
I prepared a seperated certificate stating that the present seal of our medical school is this one. Certified by the same official..and got accepted..

What tedious procedures...

Default Accepted finally

I talked to the ECFMG reps about it, the first one kept parroting out what had happened earlier(1st time and 2nd time), the next one understood what I was saying and confirmed that my 327-A was sent for a third time .. I told her that my college had sent other persons' documents too, with the same seal and they were accepted and that since it was sent by the college itself it should be the official seal ... Later I called a third time, this time around the person who picked up was the person who had answered my previous call, she said she referred my case to a credentials analyst who found that there was no discrepancy and that my credentials were now verified and that it will be updated on the website only after midnight EST ... They were and I've also received the letter from ECFMG stating that my credentials were now verified ....

I was wrong since I was away from home, the letter was actually ECFMG telling me that they've sent form 327-A a third time .....

Angry Another victim

The "credential Analyst" post in ECFMG should be escalated for nobel prize.The same seal which was accepted for other candidates of my school didn't do well with mine.The sweet voice silly hearted reps don't have any idea what one have 2 go through to make documents ready in Indian office.Thanks to our great work culture.literally pissed off but Not praying or crying coz i am mentally prepared for this day when i started preparing for usmle and its just the begining of my worries.God knows what happens when the visa officer won't like me,won't get any IV's and blah blah's....
