Is the NBOME kidding with this? 60 dollars to mail an official transcript?

How is it that my school can charge me nothing or 10 dollars, and NBOME can't manage the same. This is highway robbery!

The NBME wanted $80 lol
Oh wait that is ERAS lol
Youre a new PGY-1

The NBME just pesters you for a year to save your transcripts and you do have to pay if you dont.

If only. My state licensing board won't accept copies from me. Needs to come straight from NBOME. And hey, what do you know, they charge 60 dollars!

Oh for crying out loud.

The FSMB charges $140 for three NBME transcripts. I think my state accepts my saved transcripts...

So a funny thing happened. I spent the $60 to have NBOME release the transcripts to the state licensing board, two days ago. According to the NBOME website, the transcript was mailed yesterday by USPS; no tracking number or other information was provided.

And today I see on my online portal with the state that the transcript was received already today.

So I ordered it on 8/10, it was apparently shipped on 8/11 by USPS in a middle of the pandemic, and by 8/12 it is already uploaded in a middle of the pandemic.

Which goes to show me that it was most certainly not even mailed, just emailed. What an outrageous ripoff. The pessimist in me wonders if the transcript was even sent, by email or mail. Maybe the NBOME is in bed with the state and splitting that fee money.
