Question My Form 186 is in process, Can I still change the eligibility period?

I read in this forum that when your credentials are verified then ECFMG will ask you about which eligibility period you want to take...is this true???? I have already sent my documents to ECFMG and my form 186 in in process...I have chosen Sept Oct Nov as eligibility period in online application and want to get one or two months more..I just want to ask whether I have to take extended eligibility period or still I can choose another period?
Is there still hope?

Once you have made the choice of eligibility period and paid the exam fees and submitted your Form 186, you cannot change it.
Your only option now is to ask for extension of your eligibility period.
