OMG! this are horrible news for me.... Let me tell you... ECFMG first received Form 186 late-november and rejected it due to some issue with the medical school authority signature. I got sick of waiting for my school to solve this problem and decided to do it through a Consular Official. Did that yesterday and today it was received by ECFMG.
The horrible news are that I'm totally ready to take my Step 1!!! and now I have to wait for this process to be done. Additionally, my transcript won't be sent by my medical school for Credential Verification in the next 2 weeks.
Can I get the scheduling Permit without Credentials Verification/transcript sent by my medical school???? someone told me this wasn't necessary before, but it's a new requirement added late last year.
