Sorry to know about ur situation. Yes u can reschedule. The next eligibility period will be out by oct 1. So u should log on in IWA and u ll find the extension of eligibility period tab. U can only reschedule for d next 3 month eligibility period. U can reschedule only once and they charge a fee of 65 dollars i guess. If ur credentials ve been verified by EMSWP they ll ask 4 verification again
Hope it helps

Hi just a quick question. I am supposed to give my part 1 on Dec but my medical school hasn't received the verification letter sent by the ECFMG. So do I need to send the verification letter to ECFMG before I schedule my date?
Thanks

When it comes to verification u cant do anything. Ur school should wait i guess, anyways if students hv given usmle frm ur school ur school can prepare the set of documents needed and wait till the letter comes. It might save some time. U should get a reminder or application status frm ecfmg regarding ur application. U can call dem and ask 2. If u plan 2 give in dec get dis work done soon or else u ll b stranded
hope it helps

Hey I have a couple of quick questions. I also want to extend my eligiblity period from October-December to January-March. I went to IWA but I could not find any tab of extending the eligibility period. Also, my form 186 has been verified by ECFMG. I don't have to resend it right? However, my med school has not verified my student status via EMWSP (or whatever it is) and they will not do so until the end of December. So will the ECFMG extend my eligibility period automatically without my paying the $65 or should I extend it right now and pay? I would be grateful for the help
