Priority Review 2013-2014?

Is Rochester doing Priority review this year? I checked it off on the common app, but the application deadline still says January. Anyone know how to fix this or if in fact Rochester is doing priority review this year?

    Are all the supplements filled out on the common app? Because I saw the supplemental form online and also on the common app.

    I can't even find the Priority Review button on the Common App! All I see is ED and RD for Rochester!!!

    If I remember right, you check the priority review button on your UR account. There isn't anything you check on the common app - just get it in by the correct date.

    The only option I see on the ROC account page is for EA. There isn't even an option for RD. Does PR show up after the EA deadline?

    The Priority Review option is put under U of R's specific questions on the Common App. One of the questions asks something along the lines of "are you interested in any of these special programs?", and it has options such as REMS, GEAR, and Priority Review.

    As long as you get everything submitted by December 1st, you'll be considered for Priority Review. (As far as I know).

    There is a specific question that says "Priority Review" but common app doesn't recognize it as a different deadline. It'll still list it as January 1st.

    But unless you submit by December 1 it will not count as Priority Review.

    Did anybody's status move to step 3?

    Mine's on step 4 already
  • LAMunivLAMuniv Registered User Posts: 1,504 Senior Member
    Mine is still on step 2.

    Also I did Priority Review, and Common App still lists January 1st as my deadline. As long as you checked it off on your supplement and submitted by December 1st, you'll be fine. If you want to double check, log in to your MyRoc account, and in the box under "Welcome [YOUR NAME]!" there will be a section that's labelled "Application Type" and it will say priority review if you did everything.

    Best of luck!

    Is it me or the website changed? i can't view my status (steps)
  • mibsprincessmibsprincess Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    Yes, it has changed for me as well. I do not see the steps either.
  • quidditchcatquidditchcat Registered User Posts: 2,894 Senior Member
    Yeah the website changed. Does anyone know what Meliora Alumni Scholarship? How about "writing sample (recommended)"?

    Also for the Midyear Report, what do you do if your school won't send them in until Feb 1? Is that too late?
  • Mmorkous96Mmorkous96 Registered User Posts: 100 Junior Member
    Last time I checked on the old website (Saturday), the deadline for the mid year report is March 1.
