Delayed Scheduling Permit
I had previously completed my STEP 1 exam but my scores expired after 7 years. Now i wanted to retake my exam and applied for my USMLE Step 1 scheduling permit in June. So far i have not received my permit yet. The official reason by ECFMG is that since i have cleared the exam once before for me to retake the exam it has to be verified by NBME. NBME is taking its own sweet time to do the verification process although they have every document they need from me. Its been almost 12 weeks since i have applied and so far all i have heard is to have patience.
Just wondering if there is anyone out there who had the same issue and how much time it too for you all to get your permit.
