Default Final Medical Diploma

How long does it take to finalize my final medical diploma by the ECFMG?
here it says (ECFMG will request the medical school to provide your final medical school transcript.))
Can I do anything to make it faster?

You can send it by express mail, such as fedex or ups so it gets there in a day or 2!
Once they got it you never know how long its going to take, but expect anything from about 1-4 weeks especially in the summer when they are busy until they send it back to your med school. You could set up a fedex account for them so it gets shipped by express mail again.
Ask your med school to send the transcript by express mail too (you can offer to pay...)

Overall I guess it takes about 2 month if everything works out smoothly!

(Or have your school join the online system which takes only a few days overall)

Hope that helps!
