Help When can I get my schedule permit for USMLE step 1?

Hello, guys,

I am an international medical graduate and applied for USMLE step 1.
Now my form 186 has been verified by ECFMG, but the certification and verification of my medical school is still pending.
When can I get my schedule permit for my step 1 exam?
Only after my medical school verification is valid?
Thank you so much!

Hi
The scheduling permit is sent after they verify the documents that you send to ECFMG. They do not wait until they complete the verification process with your medical school.

All the best!

Thank you so much for the reply!
I've received the letter from ECFMG as follow one week ago:

"Your Certification of Identification Form submitted 06/18/2013 has been accepted. This form will remain on file and be valid for a period of five years. The validity dates are as follows: 09/11/2013 through 09/11/2018.

The Certification of Identification Form is processed independently of the on-line application. Acceptance of the Certification of Identification Form does not automatically guarantee acceptance of the application. Once your application has been reviewed, ECFMG will notify you of the outcome of your application.

ECFMG typically processes on-line applications within three weeks of the receipt of both the on-line part and the Certification of Identification Form. Processing will now continue on the on-line part of your application."

Does this letter mean they need another three weeks to process the on-line part application?
I can get my schedule permit for step 1 until that time?

I guess processing times vary a lot .
I think you may receive the permit only after they process your online application . It could be done as early as a week time too.
