Blue Lab Coats' DrdrA has gotten back a review of her latest grant proposal — somehow her proposal did worse this go-round — and discusses the new scoring system. She received an overall score and percentile ranking with a summary of the review panel discussion, along with individual reviews and scores for aspects of the grant proposal such as significance and approach. "My overall impression of this new arrangement? First, I thought the critiques were quite general… just lacking in specificity. And more blunt," DrdrA blogs. She later adds that "there will definitely be a learning curve to deciphering this, in all its generality, in the new scoring system."
