It is a little known #truefact of the NIH that every 500 logins or refreshes on your eRA Commons account improves your eagerly anticipated grant score by 1 percentile point.

But what if you've exceeded 50,000? What's better than 1%ile?
"Expedited Council Review"?
Maybe in shit study sections. In good study sections it's only 0.5%ile.
This is all poststudy section homes. Nothing to do with that.
Then I am easily in the 1st percentile by now.
Keep clicking my friends, keep clicking!
I'm a goddamn rat pressing the lever for a pellet.
Most SROs don't release scores until 3 business days after study section  its pointless to repetitively click until day 3.
Mine have been turning up much earlier than that. VI schedules are a bear!
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."
Click away.
dammit, 31st percentile, I DIDN'T CLICK ENOUGH FFUUUUUUUUUUUGGHHHHHH!!!
30 more clicks and you might have had a chance at funding Arlenna
What's better than 1%ile?
Ah the legendary 0% percentile. It is possible. Just login and quickly hit upupdowndown leftrightleftrightABstart.
