Different First and Last Name

25097 Views 65 Replies 24 Participants Last post by  Anonymousx
When I registered first, I typed my first and last name as Mohammad Gad, but my full name is MOHAMMAD ABDELWAHHAB HEMEDA GAD on my passport and medical diploma and transcript, so what's the best should I do? send a letter from the dean affirming that the name on the document "photocopy of my passport" and the name in ECFMG record belong to one and the same person?

we only use full name here (4 names) for example if my name is 1 2 3 4 and in my passport my name is first name: 1 and last name: 2 3 4 does the last name in my ecfmg have to be the 4th name? because i prefer to use the 3rd name as my last name
