Default Scheduling Permit: Duration until FORM 183 processed + delay from medical school

Ok so i due to a delay from medical school , the people in charge are on 'Off' for the next two weeks:c

So:

I am stuck with 25 august as the date when my form 183 will be officially signed from medical school, and will send it off with DHL that day, which will get to USA in 2 days.

Question 1

I have read that it takes 2-3weeks (that should be max Sept 21) to process the application until I receive the scheduling permit --> which i should receive online right?

I originally applied for the scheduling period September-October-November.

Question 2

SO iffff, the form isn't processed by the 25th September, I should get the next scheduling period: October-November-December, is that correct?

Just to confirm, would I need to pay anything extra, since the scheduling period I chose wouldn't be the same as the one given to me?

Question 3

As far as I can understand there are no time limits provided by ECFMG between the online application and until IWA receive the Form 183, right?

Plus I don't suppose one can obtain a refund, as I would like to do exam in late september/early october! So it would be quite disastrous if i end up doing the exam in November!

I suppose youll get Sep Oct Nov.
If in case you don't then theyll give you the next one without added charges.

Either way you can give the exam in October so dont worry too much.
Write them an email to confirm this though.
