Default inquiry about ecfmg registration process for first applicant from medical school

dear doctors/medical students,

hello,i am dr.zafran farooq from pakistan.i finished my MD(DOCTOR OF MEDICINE)degree in Kyrgyzstan.My medical school is listed in IMED,WHO directories but they dont know anything about USMLE/ECFMG process.they dont know anybody ever applied for usmle from my medical school maybe i a first applicant if i am first applicant then how should i start my process.i was thinking that my first step should be to ask my medical school to send ECFMG a letter regarding authorized officials and when ECFMG accepts that letter then i should start my process.IS it necessary that i should ask ECFMG to send any specific form and then my medical school fill them and get signature samples of authorized officials or instead my medical school can send one official letter which contains authorized official signature and their title and at end sample of my medical school official stamp without asking ECFMG to send those specific forms.i am bit confused please tell me format of such medical school official stamp is in Russian language i dont know Russian stamp will work in my ecfmg registration process and will ECFMG accept this seal as official seal?how long should i wait to start my ecfmg process after my medical school send that official letter regarding authorized official to ECFMG?will ECFMG inform me about acceptance of that official letter regarding authorized officials if i call them and ask?should i wait for ecfmg to accept that official letter regarding authorized officials and official seal and then later i start my process?i dont expect much help from my medical school?is it necessary for my medical school to participate in ecfmg web portal?can i get verification of my medical credentials right now and then later i can apply for usmle exams is it possible?i know they send form 327a for verification of credentials but mailing system in Kyrgyzstan is not good i dont think my medical school will get any form document if they will send through normal postal service can i ask ECFMG to send form 327a through DHL?i saw couple of sample of from 186 in usmle forums and in portion of medical school where should my medical school put their official seal?what does title mean in form 186?should they write post of authorized official like dean,registrar in that space of title or they put medical school official stamp in that space?what does mean of medschool code in form 327a?my medical school dont know about such code.i am thinking of applying for my usmle step 1 in start of 2015 so is it possible for me get my credentials verify now and then later i apply for my usmle step 1 exam.please reply me soon.thanks in advance.
