Help Form 186 received and accepted, but medical credentials did not!

I sent form 186 (for CS application) together with my medical diploma and all associated documents in the same envelope to ECFMG. So far, form 186 status says it has been received and accepted, but credentials information status says: "Medical education credentials not received.".

It's puzzling as my credentials were sent in the same envelope that contained form 186. How come they are not received till now? Am I missing something?

Do you need to send form 186 again?

I suppose your identification has been certified when you applied for previous exams.

I had to send in form 186 because I'm a recent graduate. I used to send form 183 while being a student when applying for earlier exams.

Well, I've checked other similar topics here, and it seems the cause is that my medical school has not replied back to ECFMG to verify my credentials. Still, it's misleading to simply mention that "Medical education credentials not received". I think a statement like "Medical education credentials received but awaiting verification" would be much clearer.

Plus, ECFMG mentions that "ECFMG sends written notification to applicants concerning the status of their credentials after ECFMG receives and processes the credentials". Do they mean here the credentials the med school should send, not the ones I sent?

Info Two questions for you

I have two questions for you before I can give my opinion:

1) did you sign Form 186 by a medical school official?
2) who sent the envelop, you or the medical school?

Then it should be only a matter of time before they update your OASIS status.
There are different ECFMG employees for each verification process.
Generally they handle Form 186 faster then credentials.
