Default Step1 eligibility extension as graduate but applied as student..plz plz help im tensed:(

HI Friends,
I applied for step1 as student in the month of January 2014.I got my scheduling permit in feb.My eligibilty starts from May 2014.But i want to apply for extension since im not ready yet.I am a graduate now.I thought i can apply for extension and send my diploma for verification at the same time.So i paid $70 for extension and completed the online part of application on 1st may.I thought it will ask for current status of mine whether student or graduate while applying for extension but it didnt...instead i got form 183-E to print and send back to them signed.Then i didnt know what to do. So,that evening i called ECFMG and told them my situation.One lady over the queries dept asked me to FAX my diploma,form 344,345 and photo of mine immediately to her and she will pass on to the responsible persons over there and told me that always my status should be updated before i apply for any extension and that my extension request will be rejected as soon as they verify my forms.
So,i faxed her the documents,she said wait for the response from ECFMG.I told her i can send her an authorisation letter to use my Fedex account by ECFMG but she said that:FIRST TIME,ECFMG WILL SEND DOCUMENTS TO YOUR SCHOOL ONLY THROUGH REGULAR MAIL<NO COURIER SERVICE.i asked her twice she repeated the same.Is that true?beecause i have heard many people send this authorisation letter to speed up the process...she told me that once they update my status my request will be rejected and i have to reapply for extension with new status as graduate...i am so worried if this whole thing completes before my deadline to apply for extension ie august 25th 2014...Can please somebody suggest me what i should do to complete whole of this in time and anyone went through similar situation????plssss throw some light .....

Hi dr.zafranfarooq,
For the first question of yours, im not in a position to answer since i myself still going through the process.Second question of yours, in India its the same situation,i asked my relatives in US to open an account for me there using their cards and we can use it from here.
