Hi everybody,

I'm very confused as i received a rejection letter from the ECFMG stating the reason of rejection as follows:
"You certified you graduated from medical school. However, you did not submit a photocopy of your final medical diploma, a graduation letter, or an official English translation of the diploma or graduation letter".

being 100% sure that i sent my final medical diploma attached to official English translation I can't help but think that English translation is the reason..... do you think i should ask the ECFMG people to do the translation themselves as it is written in 2011 info booklet........ can anybody in similar situation help me please ..........:toosad:

As you said, this is most probably due to inappropriate translation and the most common error is the lack of translator seal.

However, as Pacific said, call them 11 hours from now and see what they tell.

I am quite curious about it, so do let us know what they tell you :p

thank you for your inputs .....
but what about translation, can i ask them to do it themselves and charge my financial account, anybody did this before...... please help....:sorry:
in the booklet it mentions this as an option for transcript translation if medical school doesn't provide English transcripts, so is this also an option for medical diploma translation too ....
any experience with this ......

i called the ECFMG and the representative said that i didn't send a photocopy of my diploma in original language(Turkish), i tried to explain to the man that our damn diploma is two faces front face turkish and the back one in english and that i included a translation because the right margin of the english face of the diploma contains some informations in turkish like father's name, place of birth and type of degree..... but i coulden't convince the man and he kept asking for the photocopies of diploma in original language. now i have to send it again..... i'm really upset... should i send an email to the ECFMG containing scanned images of my diploma so he believes me or do you think i sholudn't complicate the situation more and send what they asked me to.... :toosad::toosad::toosad::toosad::toosad:
