Registration Ecfmg online application

I received email on january 16 that my certification of identification form submitted on 11/19/12 was accepted and they would continue with online application.
So far i have no news on online application status.

Should i call them and clarify ?

you can call them but i suppose they'll give you the same answer as your status...so you'll still have to wait for the second email. The staff that picks up the phone just log into your account and read the status update ....they dont have any more or less info. IMO...

If you still haven't gotten the second email, call them and make sure the application isn't being held up by the school or for any other reason.

People i know got their permits without delay in 3 wk period
Probably something went wrong during registration

Are you still a student? In any case, your med school has to go online on their EMSWP account and verify your status. Just talk to the person responsible in your school and they should do it immediately. A few days later, you'll receive an email saying that your status is verified and you'll receive your permit a week after that

Default waiting for verification from my school

Hi guys, I'm wondering if any of you have experienced the same situation like mine. the processing status is waiting for verification from your school. But I checked with my school and was already informed they submitted the electronic verification using the EMSWP last dec. 7,2012. I called the ECFMG office regarding this but they keep insisting they didn't receive the verification. I am at lost now what to do...

The ecfmg sends ur school an email every friday requesting them to verify ur status. If the school does it, ecfmg will usually send u an e-mail w/in 24hrs that ur application has been received and will be on file for the next 5 years. About 2-3 weeks after this you'll receive another e-mail informing u that your step 1 application processing is complete and that you've been registered for your chosen eligibility period.

If your application is being held up at the student status verification stage, it's almost always your schools fault. So, I would suggest you contact ur school and have it sorted out.

G'luck

My school told me that my credentials couldn't be verified because I'm still a student. Anyone had this same issue. I find it really weird.
For how long is the a step 1 online application valid?

Also. How long does it take to process online application after credentials have been verified?

Hello I am from Bangladesh currently giving my final prof. Can someone please explain to me the application process for step 1. I plan to register for it before my final prof results come out. In that case I am still a student when I am applying and hence what documents will I need to get from my medical college?
Thanks
