Unhappy Overriding for Step1 and reapplying


I had applied for Step1 and selected Oct-Nov-Dec as my slot. Bt the online part of my medical school verification is stil pending. Wn I had contacted Ecfmg, dey tel me dat my Certificate of Identification is accepted so, if I reapply by overriding my existing application den I don't have to wait for the online part of it.

Can any1 tel me how many days wil it take for my scheduling permit to come if i override my application?
And overriding involves jus online part of it or shld v again send em documents via Airmail?

I want to take my xm in December. Pls help me!

I'm stuck in the EXACT same situation as you. I also chose Oct-Dec but my med school is being lazy, and I actually wanted to postpone my exam coz of that (turns out you can't do that until your med school verifies your status....sheesh). The person whom I called at ECFMG told me that if my med school verifies me and everything is complete by 26th of December, I'll get the Dec-Feb eligibility period.
I wasn't told anything about overriding
As far as I know, med school verification is pretty necessary.
So what I understand is: that if you override your application, you can give your exam as soon as ECFMG gets ur application? Don't you have to send form 186 again?
Sorry for the multiple questions
