    Default AFG computer scoring and peer-review timetable?

    This question has probably been addressed somewhere else in the forum but I was wondering if anyone has any idea what the computer scoring and peer review schedule is going to be for the 2008 AFG? As I remember, the peer reviews are typically in June, right? Does that mean the computer scoring should be done soon? I realize we will not hear anything substantive until August or September but it is still nice to know where our applications are in the process.

    Best of luck to everyone.

    Peer is done over a three week period. I believe it starts next Monday (4-28-08). If not--it started this week (4-21-08). Either way--computer scoring is done.

    Comp scoring is done soon after submit is pressed, after the period is over it lists everything out to figure out who goes to Peer. Which starts Monday.

    I've always wished I could know how one of our department's applications scored, and how it stacked against the worst/best/median.

    I'm sure it's like taxes, with the rules and priorities shifting from year to year, but just imagine if you could pre-process your application, and see how it scored.

    I would imagine that is it graded on a curve.. but is there a pre-determined pass-fail line?
    This is probably one of those "be careful what you wish for" things... but it would be great to have some constructive feedback.

    Talk with your regional AFG rep. Sometimes they can "clue you in" on why a narrative or project scored low. But only if it made it to peer review.

    They can usually give you hints on why they didn't make it to Peer also, I know several that do that. Just have to ask, they're more than willing to help out.
