Default med school verification and assigned eligibility period

hello everyone, i just have a couple of questions. I have chosen the Oct-Dec eligibility period but my med school still hasnt verified my status yet. If they verify it this month before the 26th, which eligibility period will i be assigned? And if they verify it after the 26th of December, what will be my eligibility period then? Also, how soon after status verification do we get the scheduling permit?

Called ECFMG yesterday and they clarified for me. If my med school verifies my status beofre the 24th, I'll be assigned the eligibility period of Dec-Feb, and if my med school does it after the 24th, I'll get the Jan-March slot.
Scheduling permit comes 3-5 days after the process is complete.
Just wanted to write down my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation, because I have noticed a lot of posts in this ECFMG sub-forum just get buried, and get no replies
