Default urgent help needed regarding ecfmg registration process confusion for firtst time applicant

hi,i am dr.zafran farooq from pakistan.i graduated from osh state university,medical faculty Kyrgyzstan 1.5 year ago.right now i am in pakistan.now i decided to appear in usmle but whole process is complicated,lengthy,time consuming,expensive.i heard no one ever applied for usmle/ecfmg from my medical school so nobody knows about this whole process in my school.they dont even know who is authorized official and what is ecfmg medical school web portal.after reading couple of IMGs experiences i found out how tough this process is.i do not want my forms 2 get rejected due to any stamp/signature problem or get lost before reaching my school.my medical school official stamp is in Russian language.will it be a problematic for me.our dean and reactor got changed since i graduated and they dont even know English language that well either so i really dont know how do i start whole process.is it possible to get my medical credentials verified by sending my diploma copies and form 344,345 without applying for usmle steps and paying for usmle steps fee?i have my medical degree and mark sheet.do we send only our medical degree photocopies to ecfmg and our medical schools verifies our credentials and then our medical school send our marks sheet to ecfmg?i am thinking about appearing in step 1 at end of 2014.please help me and clarify and guide me

bro, i read ur post.. i think u should go to ecfmg website and check that your college is in IMED list or not... then call ecfmg "+1-215-386-5900".
only they can tell you. if your college is in IMED list, you wont have much of a problem,,, still only they can tell you exact status.... if u call them form pakistan , u can call form 7 pm till 3 am... which is 9 to 5 accrding to their time
