Default education credentials not verified

Hi everyone,
Mine is a very depressing story. I am a 12 graduate, my step scores are 251,253,pass. I have done w months clerkship in usa with 3 waived lors that have been all uploaded. My med school sent credentials for verification on july 17 . I called ecfmg regarding my credentials status they said they have not recieved them yet. Now i have no hope of getting verified and certified before sep 15. So i will not be able to take part in the match this year. I feel like i jave been cheated out. I put in so much hard work and i will suffer bexause of no fault of my own. This is unfair. My friend had sent his credentials 2 days after me and he got veeified a month ago. How do they work at Ecfmg? And that guy isn't even ready for match this year

you can apply for residency even without the ecfmg certificate. there are only FEW programs that require the certificate while applying for the residency.
you have to get the certificate thing done by the interview date or by december end.
