I also ran into trouble with signature problem. I talked to one ECFMG
representative in person and he told me to have my school send a letter to
them. The letter should :
1. In school letter head
2. provide the list of personnel authorized to sign the documents.
3. List these personnel's Name, Titel, and their signature.
4. Have the school's official stamp/seal
5. The person writing letter can be the same one who sign your 327 form or
can be different. It dosen't matter as long as school seal is there.
You can have your school send the letter to the credential department of
ECFMG (My school sent via Fedex). They will reconsider your original 327
form instead of disregarding it. It took them around 5 days to update the
letter to the system and another 2-3 days to verify the letter and the form
again. After that, I got my certification.
You should try to talk to one representative and then have him/her handle
your case. In that way, he/she will remember you and know how long you have
been through this trouble.
Another mistake I had with my form is the school didn't complete the form.
They miss two checks (x) due to the difference between Chinese and American
ways of filling up forms. So if it is possible, have your school send you a
copy of the form to make sure they didn't miss anything and fill up wrong
information. This mistake cost me 5 months delay in getting certification
and several potential interviews.
The other thing to keep in mind is call ECFMG often to follow up. They didn'
t tell me the problem with my form till I went there to talk to them!
Otherwise, they will just send another form to your school and tell you
afterwards. It is your problem and you got to be aggressive. Be polite but
