Form ECFMG form confusion (forms 187, 344, 345)

Hey y'all -

I am an Irish IMG who graduated this May (2013).
I am applying to the Match 2014 and earlier today went about scheduling my USMLE Step 2 CS (have Step 1 and 2 CK done).

As I went through the various screen pages in my aborted attempt to schedule Step 2 CS, I got to the point where it was prompting me to check an option that I would send form 187, 344, and 345 to ECFMG in addition to 2 copies of my medical diploma with English translation (since ours is in Latin), and a photograph.

I've read the closed thread above that is stickied about forms; however, I'm still confused!
Do I (personally) send these forms, or does the medical school I graduated from do it?
Also, I recently uploaded a photograph (head and shoulders) via OASIS so that it is available to ERAS. Is this photograph request associated with form 344 something different?

Thanks in advance for any insight y'all may have!

Just found out from my medical school that Forms 187, 344, and 345 are sent by your medical school to ECFMG.

You have to submit form 344 and 345 along with your photo and 2 copies of medical diploma yourself. Then they will send your credentials to your college for verification.

I think there may be differences in how these forms are sent depending on whether your college has access to a particular ECFMG forwarding system (at least that's the way it was explained to me by the admin person in my medical school).
In my case (having not yet sit Step 2 CS), I was told that the medical school forwards those forms, photo, diploma, transcripts, etc. for me. As long as it reaches ECFMG, I'm fine with that!
