in the top part of the form, the medical school seal (also called stamp) is only required. the only part of the form which needs the signature is the bottom part of the form in the certification by medical school official section.

the stamp should be that of ur medical college and not ur dean's personal stamp. please note that the seal to be placed on the form should exactly match the seal that ECFMG has in its records of ur college. in case of seal mismatch they may reject ur application (however its least likely) bt in no case should ur dean's personal seal be placed

If according to the clerk, the same seal was placed for all the previous applications from ur college, then u too shud have the same one. Ideally they visually compare the seal with the previous applications from ur college.

Default NEED suggestion

I have few questions. please reply.

I am asking these questions because my college dean is not supportive at all. this means he might not even sign when i will be present in front of him.thanks

1) should the DATE on which applicant sign and DATE on which college's Dean sign should match.(i am asking this as i would send my document to my college which is in other state, so i would not be present when my college dean sign my application form.)

2)How do ECFMG people make sure that my college has only sent the envelop containing (My FORMS 186,187,344,345 and medical school diploma).and its not me
thanks again

3) Iam a graduate and my school participates in EMSWP can i apply through notary.If yes will i face any problem in future.

1) NO
2) The envelope bears the sender's name & adddress. Secondly on recieving ur form 186 from ur college, they verify ur status from ur college(via EMSWP) i.e. ur attendance dates, whether u r still a student and what is the tentative date u will be recieving ur MBBS degree. In case u r a graduate it will verify ur attendance dates
3) It is advisable to get it done by ur dean and not the notary. as far as i know u take notary's sign only if u r nt in the country of ur medical college. if u r in the same country u shud get it done from ur dean.
