Help ECFMG verification letter

Hi everyone,
I am IMG and had sent the step 1 application materials and have received a letter saying that my medical school will receive the verification documents. But it has been 2 months and my medical school hasn't received it yet.

How long does it take to get the verification letter from ECFMG? Is the verification necessary in order to appear for the step 1 exam?

Thank you for suggestions in advance.

hey, I'm IMG too....i'm also suffering from same problem.....they sent to my college nearly 3 months ago(form 327-a)..but our college didn't receive it.
but, it's not needed for writing step 1(may get a problem in getting results i guess),.it's for standard ECFMG certification....
.if your college participate in EMSWP, they'll send a accepting letter in it..if ur college accepts it....u'll get scheduling permit to write exam....
if ur college is not in EMSWP,they'll send schedule permit directly i guess...

as for myself is concerned.....my college participate in EMSWP...so i got my schedule permit after my college acceptance..but, i'm waiting for form 327-a verification though....but, when i called ecfmg..they told they'll resending again this month though....
so, once you call them and clarify it.........it won't stop from appearing exam......good luck
