I do not think you need syllabi if you are applying for a license that
corresponds to your major. Maybe if you are trying to get a license for
something other than your major, I don't know.
I did exactly what you thought you had to do: sent transcripts and the
MTEL's... and paid, of course.
You can call the DOE, but you may have an interesting time doing so.
Long waits, etc. It sounds like you have no choice BUT to call them,
