Question Change of name by marriage

Hello,
When I made USMLE ID my name was same on each and every of mine documents like Medical school transcript, degree, MSPE, passport and USMLE.

10 months back I got married and I changed my middle name and last name on my passport and in USMLE. But all of my medical school documents like transcript, degree, MSPE, LOR are of previous before marriage name.

So now name on my USMLE + passport and degree are different. I am applying for 2014 match.

What should I do?

You should call them and ask. Must be a common situation, and they would be the best to advise you.
