    Most SROs don’t release scores until 3 business days after study section – its pointless to repetitively click until day 3.

    I read the SRO email wrong (see below):

    “WHEN WILL SCORES BE AVAILABLE? Scores will be released to the NIH computer within three working days of the meeting and will be available immediately on NIH Commons. NIH policy states that I cannot give out your score; please do not call me for this information.”
