Help On-line application mistake...medical diploma name

Hi guys, need help.

Already applied on line for my step 1 and reached up to paying for the exam: 920$. My question is that I mistakenly placed on Name of Diploma, item 22: Lemuel Allan B. Tababa, which doesn't match with my name on my actual medical diploma: Lemuel Allan Balutan Tababa.
Will there be problems on my application? What should I do since I already paid ECFMG

...thanks

In most instances there's no problem in minor differences in middle initials.

However, to be on the safe side, I suggest you give them a call tomorrow morning. Probably, they'll cancel your online application and ask you to apply once again online. The money can be kept in your account.

Let us know what they tell you on the phone after you call them

Default Thanks!

I' ve been trying to reach them...might be the difference in time zone. I'll call them up later on their available sked time. Actually, on the other hand, was able to talk to a representative on prometric, telling me it won't be a problem. It's kinda a bum though, coz i can't start studying til i get this fixed . Anyways, will let you guys know what ecmfg replies. Tnx again
