Help Extension of eligibility period


my eligibility period is march-april-may for step 1 n i want to extend my eligibility period to june-july-august..my form 186 is accepted n my permit is available..

my current status at ecfmg website says that "Medical education credentials received and verification is pending." of form 327-A (Form 327-A is the form that ECFMG sends to your medical school to request verification of final medical school diploma and a final medical school transcript).. i called my medical school they said that they have send it on 5th of this month..

i wanted to know that can i extend my eligibility period now?? my 186 form has been accepted n permit is available OR i also need to wait for verification as i dont want to loose extra dollars and want to apply before 30 days..

also i wanted to know how much time ecfmg takes for verification process n eligibility extension process??

please help..thanks in advance..
