Question ECFMG documents

hi everybody!
i want to make my step 1 exm in march and yesterday i wanted to register and to apply. i paid the $850 fees, i chosed the first eligibility perdiod, and thn i realized that there is no enough time that all the documents arrive from my univ to ECFMG ... i have to say that i am in USA now, and the things in my home country, where i studied, are moving really slowly
my question: can i change today to another elig per , without to pay? id my orginal MD diploma and the thanscript are with me, how the uni can send them ? legalised copies, etc... for the IMGs, how did u guys manage this problems?
any advice would be perfect
thank's

your credentials will be verified in the background , no need to worry abt it, once your exam application is approved , u re good to go for the exam within this very eligibility period,just get your form 186 verified asap,coz it needed to make you eligible for the exam
chill and relax....study hard

well in your case now , lucky you , u don't hv to bother sending docments from colg....
process is now simple as eating a cup cake...
get your form 186 attested asap
fills all the the remaining forms that you hv with black ball point...
attach the photocopies of your credentials and picture and mail it to ecfmg....that's it...
after acceptance of your form 186 and completion of your onlne part of the usmle application , an email will hv to be sent to ecfmg (its called verification from med school_,this is the last step before u get your permit...Goodluck!

u can send by yourself JUST if u will proceed the form 186 type B...and this it's possible just if your univ participates in EMSWP...
when u finish the registr on the site, will appear automatically the options that u have for 186 form ....

@Faith : No need to send 186 again.
Processing may take upto 4weeks...
U will recieve email from ECFMG WITHIN 1-3WEEK stating that your form 186 has been recieved .

@dr. your eligibilty period starts after your 186 approval...if you want to choose triad again then cancel USMLE application and resubmit(DONT FORGET TO CHECK UPDATED USMLE APPLICATION fee)cuz i cancelled my application and when i reapplied i had to pay some extra bucks becuz they updated fee :-D
