check with your school. They probably dropped the ball.

I already gave step 1 n have a valid form 186...

I didn't need to send any documents again as the already sent them..now could this delay b due to the holidays?

I called up ECFMG but they put me on hold for more than 15 minutes both time..any more suggestions?

Correct Answer Don't worry!

the delay is due to the holidays and moreover, the 3 weeks is approximate and it might take longer due to more applicants before the fee was increased. They may also request a recheck with your med school, so it'd be proper to check with your medical school also if they had received any letter from ecfmg.

You dont need to worry.My form 183 was accepted on 20th Dec. and they processed my form on 14th jan.So the time period of 3 weeks is just approximate.

I'm having the same problem. ECFMG received my 183 form on Jan 3, but still no word. Hope they accept it. The problem is that I had to sign it from a different vice dean this time, so I hope his signature is recognized. My Step 1 application went much faster; it was accepted exactly after a week.

I just got an email from ECFMG saying that finally my 183 form was accepted! -- It took exactly 3 weeks for me.

So yours could be on the way!

I don't think you need to call them. Just wait some more time, I'm sure they'll get back to you saying whether it was accepted or not.
