Hi guys, hope any of you guys can help me.

So I am an IMG - graduated in 2013. I am applying for 2018 match. I have completed Step 1, 2 CK and CS. However, my medical school has had so many problems with ECFMG getting my credentials verified (its the first time they have had someone applying to the US).

I am not sure if the credentials will be verified on time before applications are sent on the 15th of September. Will this hurt my chances to match, even though I have done all the exams?

As long as you have all of the exams done, most programs won't care. You'll need to be certified by the time ranking happens, of course.

The bigger issue is that your school has "never done this before". If no one has heard of your school, you may have some issues with that.
