Just FYI to all the instructors who plan on solving the exam (and somebody correct me if I'm wrong): IIRC, there was an error on WA #4c Part III. Instead of 8.09, the number should be 8.02. I do remember the proctor noting that particular question with the correct value, but not 100% sure if my value is correct.

Again, I may be wrong. If however it still wasn't corrected, come on SOA... really? At least put a note or something.... -__-

I told James Washer this yesterday. But yeah seriously, what's up with that SOA? The instructors are gonna be confused themselves.

Looking at Guo's solutions, I can't figure out what I did on WA5 to get the profit an order of magnitude off -- it seems so straightforward now.

Still feeling good on a score of ~70 seeing the WA solutions to the exam! Now, the long wait

Same. I got some ridiculous number over 20,000 for that part.
Looking at Guo's solution, I would conservatively give myself a 67.

Anyone know about when to expect the SOA official solution for LTAM to be posted on their website?

Around 2-3 weeks after grades are released.
