Help Never thought of verification as an issue!

Hi all

My CK exam is on early August. I've chosen this date so as to be ready with my three scores ( CS, Step1 and CK ) by mid late August to be ready to 2012 match

The thing is I am still a student. My graduation is on late June. This leaves me with just July and August for the completion of my verification. I always thought that 2 months will be more than enough (as the verification of my ECFMG form - form 186 took a little less than a month) but lately I realized that the verification may not be ready by late August, it may need more than two months!!

Help please! is that correct? and can I do anything to fasten this procedure?

Default Don't worry

It rarely takes more than two months.

Also, during August and September, the ECFMG steps up their performance to meet the high demand in those two months.
