Form Certificate of Identification form rejected (New Medical School)

My Certificate of Identification form has been rejected because the signature on my form does not match with the Authorised Officials list with the ECFMG.

Problem is that i am the first applicant from my medical college to have applied to ECFMG. ( My college is a new one, and i am amongst the second batch to graduate )

My college has never sent any Authorised Officials list to ECFMG. ( I have confirmed this ). . . How do i go about solving this problem?

Arrow Your school should contact the ECFMG

I am sorry to hear your story.

Your college should contact the ECFMG formally and send them a list of authorized medical school officials.

They should send them email, contact them by phones, and send them regular mails in order to make it happen.

Arrow Be patient, it could take time

I totally agree with what steptaker said.
I would like to add that this process might take time because your med school has to send some documents and contact the ECFMG.
In the meanwhile you should start your prep and contact your med school officials regularly to check the status
