Angry Ecfmg rejected my application

Hello guys,
Im medical student,ecfmg recieved my form183 and they replied me today that my application is rejected under following reason.
Your Certification Statement (Form 183) must be signed by an appropriate official as outlined below.
If you are currently a medical school student, your Certification Statement must be signed and dated, in ink, by an authorized official of your medical school. The signature of the medical school official must match an authorized signature that is on record at ECFMG. The official’s title and institution must also be listed. English translations must be provided for all information that is not in English.

...Many students from school already signed the same way,but their application is approved why mine is rejected.I dnt even understand above what is the exact reason?
i want to tell yu guys that my school official always put 2 signatures as certifying official,as in my form it was also 2 with different inks(black& blue) and official title and name of official i put myself later.Than i sent that application as it is from my school.So guys plz help me where is the mistake?
Now ecfmg asked me to resent again online part of my application+form183.so what about my last payment for application,now i ve to pay again or what ???

hey really sorry to know about your application....dont worry all will be fine
resend yourapplication...the ecfmg has assigned a specific official in each medical school who is authorised to sign your application...in case u get it signed by anyone else your application will be rejected
first of all confirm from your school who is the medical official that ecfmg has assigned most probably it will be your dean/principal.The ecfmg people are very particular about this...sometimes it happens that we get the application signed by the principal and by the time it reaches ecfmg the principal changes or retires(inquire that this was not the case with your application)
you havnt lost anything except the time
it will take another 3 weeks for your application to be processed after they receive it
all will be fine
you can even call ecfmg(on all working days)about it.check it out on ecfmg website
hope this bit of information helps
all the best
its a toll free number
