i applied twice and i am expecting to be rejected again since i didn't send the original language copy , i sent only the english copy my uni issues two forms of diploma one in the official language here and another one in english. the lady who picked up my call at ecfmg was rather useless, has it been outsourced?
i need to spend more money now to send those docs and wait for 3 more weeks...

Hi Dr Mariem, my advice is that you cant send form 186 or they will reject it, it has to be sent from your college or you can visit ur medical school personally along with ur form 186. Meet ur dean/principal who's signatures are verified at ECFMG. Ur college fellows must be knowing that. After ur form gets appropriately signed by him. Place a seal on ur photograph as mentioned. Now get an envelope which has got a printed name and address of ur college from the clerks there. Every institution has envelopes with its name and address printed on it. Make sure u also stamp it with ur college seal on front. Write the address of the office of ur medical college dean on the back of it. Send it through some reliable courier like DHL and there too mention it that it is from the college and not from ur side. So they will type ur college's name on the reciept and not urs.
GOOD LUCK

queries

-for credentials, should i translate them or i can get an english 1 directly form college? and if i have old 1 i have to get another 1 for new vice dean signature?
-photocopies you mean the diploma we get make it black and white copy and translate it once and also make a copy? because this will be costly
-do i have to determine eligiblity period and pay fees before finishing papers? because i want to finish papers from college in egypt before living for an observship and determine when to take the exam and schedule my studying later
-my photos have certain criteria? i write the same name on my ecfmg account? should it be stamped?
-if you are from kasr el ainy, cairo uni. Egypt, who can i ask about any thing about ecfmg and usmle or who to ask about the authorized person to sign my papers? is it the vice dean office? and i get the envelope and stamp from them and they really send them to ecfmg or at the end ecfmg will ask me to send them myself?
-should i send transcripts or wait until ecfmg send to my college to send transcripts for them?
-what is notary public?

*for now i made ecfmg account and got id and password, what is next is to translate my diploma, make ecfmg certification application, and papers for examinations even if i am not scheduling now because no time plan for now?

sorry but alot of changes occured by this year like no need for forms 187 and 344.

thanks in advance.
