Help Scheduling permit issuing

Hi
I am medical graduate and I applied for USMLE Step 1 exam in October. My on-line application and certification of identification (form 186) was received to ECFMG on October 30. and i got e-mail saying that:
"ECFMG typically processes on-line USMLE applications within 3 weeks of receipt of both the on-line part and the Certification of Identification Form (Form 186)"

Form 186 status was accepted in November 18, but as mentioned in e-mail it's processed independently of the on-line application.

Since October 30 (date when they received everything) 5 weeks has passed, and i still did't get any response. I called to ECFMG and was told that "my medical educational credentials are being reviewed" and once they will review they'll ask my university for verification (University participates in ESMWP). My eligible period is December-February and I'm worried why reviewing of credentials by ECGMF is taking so long?

Today i found this on ECFMG information booklet... And it confused me
I knew that first i have to send all required documents to ECFMG and after that they will contact university for verification.
So i didn't get this part:
"BEFORE an international medical graduate can be registered for USMLE, the applicantís status as a medical school graduate must be verified directly by his/her medical school."
I registered without any verification before, so it might be the reason for delaying?
