Loading VS2012 Compilers into VS2013?

Im a long time X-Code user having to make the shift to Visual Studio to teach some OF workshops in China in June. I pulled down VS2013 only to realize OF 0.8 is VS2012 only. I just gave 0.8.1RC2 a try with no luck. So the big question is, Can one load VS2012 Compilers into VS2013 and build without needing to upgrade the projects? Or should I just dump VS2013 and hunt down VS2012? What is the likelihood of OF being VS2013 ready by May? Trying to figure out where to spend my time…
