Unhappy Waiting verification from medical school and scheduling permit

Hi.
I was sent an email last dec 22 that ecfmg sent a request to my school for verification of my credentials. How long will it take for them to verify my application? and from what I've read from other threads, I can be expecting my scheduling permit? And around how long will it take for ecfmg to send it? Does it mean that a scheduling permit can be provided even if the verification is still pending? Can I take the exam before the verification?
I'm sorry for having so many questions. And I know it's December and with the holidays, some things will take longer than expected but I'm very anxious about my application.
I will appreciate all the help you can give.
Thank you very much!

You're post is very confusing. I'm guessing you sent ECFMG your exam application and are waiting for the scheduling permit to be issued? It takes 3-4 weeks for ECFMG to process your application and issue the scheduling permit and only then will you be able to book a date via prometric.
