Default How long before I get my next scheding permit?

So my current extended eligibility period ends on the 31st of October so I was wondering when I can fill out a new application and make the payment? Is there some waiting period?

Also how long does it take the process? 2-3 weeks? I've already for my med school credentials validated by ECFMG. Would that help in making the process shorter?

I really want to take this exam in November but if I start the application process on the 1st of November and it takes 3 weeks, there's no way I'll get a date in late November at my local Prometric Center, which sucks big time.

Had been in this sticky situation,you will have to wait 2 weeks from the last day of your eligibility period i.e till nov.14 to fill out the new application. And then it took 7-10 to get my permit i.e another week added.i did call ecfmg to confirm this.hope this clears ur doubts.

Oh yes, thanks a lot! I guess I'll apply on the 15th of Nov. then. Add another 10 days to that, I should get my permit by the 25-27th of Nov. I guess that means I can only take my exam in the 1st/2nd week of December.
