They usually take three weeks to process your application...

I think, the best way out of this is calling up ECFMG and telling them that slots are getting filled up etc and tell them to process your application faster. Secondly, go to your medical school and check if they have completed the online part of medical school verification....

If that is done, they take about 2 working days after verification for issuing the scheduling permit..

Good luck..

Default Application status not changed

Hi,

I have done the step 1 online registration and have mailed all the credentials and forms . According to the postal office, my documents were delivered to ECFMG on September 22. But when I check the status via OASIS, it says Processing Status: Waiting for Certification Statement/Certification of Identification Form --- usually how long will it take for them to process this and for the status to change to RECEIVED ? and also how long will it take for the medical creditails to get verified by my med school?, I am IMG- India . thx

OASIS:
Processing Status: Waiting for Certification Statement/Certification of Identification Form
