and to the best of my knowledge, I need to have one supervisor to download and submit my F.A paper.

Since I am not working and do not have a job yet (I am still in School, last year), I cannot find have any boss who is F.S.A
I learned that a professor in school is good to be my supervisor to attest that I download and submit Final Assessment paper.
Therefore, I am wondering if there is any professor in school willing to be my supervisor
I really do appreciate your help.
Aren't you a student there? Just go on UW's website and find the e-mail addresses of a prof or two, and ask them. Good luck getting a response from a UW prof on the AO.

I am sorry I am not well-versed with the Canadian actuarial profession - but it looks kind of strange to be attempting FAP FA without having a job!

I do not have a full-time job but I used to have internship in insurance companies

not sure if we (UW) have the greatest ACTSC department in the world but (I think) we have the best actuarial science students.
I and some of my friends pass SOA exams before taking the course
(just went over the study guide, do the practice problems etc.)
I think it is normal to pass all five exams before graduation, esp when students are in co-op program

It's not 'normal', more like progressive peer pressure (in a good way I suppose if one decides Actsci is their thing)
