Form No form 183 or 186 after completing online registration!

hello,
I have completed the online registration this morning and was on the verge of printing out the pdf files for form 187,344,345. But there is no accessible pdf files for both form 183 and 186. When I click the links for the forms a window appears mentioning that to get access to these forms, the online applications have to be completed using IWA (which in fact I have completed). So, what might be the problem?
N.B: I have read a similar post where it has been said that the applicant might have faced the problem as he did not mention whether he was an undergraduate/graduate. But I have mentioned I am an undergraduate during my online registration.

Default Where could 186 be?

I have the same problem, I obtained forms 344, 345 and 187, but no 186. From what I've read around here, it seems form 186/183 won't pop available until paying for the examination (I already paid for the "Application for ECFMG Certification"). I hope that's true, I fear I may had overlooked it so it's gone for good.

You can't get it until you apply for either step 1 or 2

Hey mimi.

So I need to get an eligibility period for usmle & then only shall I be able to access the form? Are you sure that's the way it works? (Because people tell me that it should give you the form immediately)

And say I pick an eligibility.. After I get access, I need to complete applying for it within 24 days?

I dont know about the 24day thing but you cant even get the forms until you complete the online application. And dont make the mistake of using step 1 app like i did unless your 100% sure u'll be ready for it soon. Use step 2cs application cos it has a longer eligibilty period of 12mths. I just applied in july though, mayb its changed since then.

Hey mimi.. You were right! I got the form after applying for step 1
Thank you so much for replying <3

After you make your ecfmg id, I think within 14 days you need to apply for an exam.. That's the so called "on-line" part of the application

And within 4 months or so you need to send the application to Philadelphia.. Doing that part now, hope everything goes well

Umm.. I haven't had that option since I am applying was step 1 and haven't done clerkship yet.

Call up ECFMG and let them know about your problem. They'll help you out!

And if the office is closed or something you can email.
They replied me within 10 days so that was pretty cool.
Calling Philadelphia is the better & quicker option though.

Don't get stressed out (like I did).. They are really helpful, probably the problem is minor & will get fixed in no time!

Let us know how it goes & good luck!
