Default Help with ECFMG registration

Hello. Please forgive me if thee is a similar thread; i searched though.
I'm from Chennai, India and I wish to give my USMLE step 1 by the year-end. I recently graduated from my undergraduate MBBS course. My medical school/college is recognized by FAIMER and in the World Directory of Medical Schools, but there's no entry from the ECFMG in the Sponsors tab of my college in the Directory. I contacted the ECFMG, but they want a letter explaining about my college's details from the accreditation authority of medical schools in India, the Medical Council of India. Can anyone please help me on how to proceed, I'm worried like hell.

It seems like you need to get in direct contact with your medical school in India and have them take a look at Form 186.

Also, your school must be ECFMG accredited so be sure to check into that as well.

Good luck!
