* Form 327-A
  fmg_007 - 09/14/10 12:00
  My school is getting ready to send the 327 back to ECFMG (finally) confirming the verification. Question: Does the school also need to include transcripts along with the 327?
I had already mailed in a copy of my transcripts to ECFMG earlier in August.

  Your school should mail a new transcript with the form or else you will be back to square 1. hope this helps

  ok, but was just wondering b/c they have already scanned my transcripts and i see it on my ERAS under "my documents".
My school participates in electronic transmission of documents so they previously received the xripts.

  hopefully ecfmg certification will be quicker than the "8 weeks" as ECFMG states once they receive my 327

  I think transcripts have to be sent with degree verification in addition to transcripts sent to ERAS.

  @drrogerfederer , but i don't get the point - my transcripts are already in their system - including ERAS post office

  well, if u can get a paper transcript again, maybe u should, just to be on a safe side. My ECFMG verification took a week and 4 days. suprised? once u have the form with them, wait for a week and give them a call. i bet it will be done in additional 2-3 days. That was what i did

  good tip about the verification- thanks.
requesting xcripts from my school takes ages to process, that's why I'm trying to see if they will make do with the xcripts already in their sys

  You dont have to send the originals. Send an attested copy. I hope you have the copies. And yes now I am sure we have to send transcripts with degree verification too. just consulted a senior. (Atleast its true for my medschool)
