Angry credential verification

HI
I submitted my credentials in October 2011 and they are not verified yet!! don't know where the problem is? The last time i got my application rejected because it stated that credentials were not signed by authorized official. So i requested my medical school to update the current Official in ECFMG records. They sent the air mail 2 weeks back. BUT MY APPLICATION IS STILL PENDING. I have few questions here:
1. How is that possible that other people of my medical school get their credentials verified and in my case the official is not authorized? I am really confused because in almost 2 years my application has not processed!
2. Do we have different officials authorized for credential verification and Exam (step 1 ck and cs) verification? Because at that time I faced no problem.
This undue delay has really bothered me a lot.
I don't know how to proceed with this.
Your suggestion will be highly appreciated.
Thanks.

It looks like your school has recently changed the person who's authorized to sign these forms. This process takes time, sometimes up to 2 months from th date your school send the mail.

This issue has been discussed several times in the forums before, here's some examples:

Default once again form 327 rejected!!

hi sabio and all..
from the posts you attached here i got the idea that my credentials were rejected becuase of authorized official signature,,, so i requested my medical school to resend ecfmg the current official name.. my medical school told me its not the dean but the examination department that verifies credentials...so they sent the details of registrar to ecfmg.. but ecfmg rejected once more because they are saying the signatures don't match.. My head is spinning now... how should i proceed..?
My form 186 was accepted once so is it the same person who signs form 186 and credentials????
I mean Can anyone tell me form 186 and credentials are verified by same authorized official or different officials...!!
I wonder how my seniors got their credentials verified!!!!!!
this process is taking a toll on me now...
Any help will be highly appreciated..

The ECFMG will reject the signature once it's changed from prior record that the ECFMG they have.
It should be one person who signs all ECFMG related documents.
Your school must be actively involved in this process, they should tell the ECFMG who is the currently authorized person to sign.
Also, keep calling the ECFMG, every day, until you get a hold of someone who can tell you exactly what should be done.
