Question Credentials verified but no Scheluling Permit!

Hi, everybody!

It has been almost 2 months since my medical school sent the final medical school transcript. Last week I received a letter notifying me that ECFMG has received direct verification of my final medical school diploma and final medical school transcript. When I go to OASIS medical credentials link, it is written that my diploma has been received and verified, but the USMLE application information page says, "Waiting for verification of status from your medical school."
My question is:
Is this normal and if it is when and how will I receive the scheduling permit?
Thank you in advance!

Default It looks like a bug in your OASIS account

I don't think that's normal. I suspect a technical error in your OASIS account or a delay in the update process.

Give them a call first thing tomorrow morning so that they fix this bug.

Let us know what will happen with you.

Hi, guys!

I called them and the answer was that my medical school hasn't confirmed the verification online. ECFMG confirmed that all documents are correct. I was given 2 options:
a) to contact my medical school so they can complete the confirmation;
b) to reapply for the USMLE exam online because all document are ready and correct and to receive the scheduling permit after 2-3 weeks.
I've chosen option a). Hopefully, this will work, if no- I have to go to option b).
I will keep you posted about the outcome.
Keep your fingers crossed!

Default opposite problem

Hi,
I had the opposite problem.
My medical school confirmed everything online and I got the scheduling permit right away. I have scheduled my test even if my credentials are not verified. I had to call ECFMG to find out what was wrong and apparently my med school hadn't sent the physical documents back yet, now they have (on their way).
Good luck!

Hi, guys!

Unfortunately, option a) didn't work. The school is "currently offline" . They told me that "no such service is provided" , so I had no other choice but to proceed with option b) which turned to be much easier. So I reapplied for the exam a few days ago and today I've received an e-mail from ECFMG saying that my permit will be issued within a week.

Thanks for the assistance!

Good luck to all!
