I had 6660 words. MMR'ed 6/17 submitted 4/28.
Anyone that can answer the questions clearly and thoroughly can pass, but it seems it usually requires >7000 words to do so. Anyone passing with less I would say is writing very concisely. you passed with 6k, I failed with 9k, so word count is obviously no guarantee of result. congrats on getting that MMR.

For those of you who have had to redo CDEF a second or third time, did the questions change at all?

I just came here to ask that question!

Assuming the answer is no,
did anyone else put the entire sim segal table from task 1 (im forgetting what it is called) in the appendix of the memo to the executive person? Is that overkill?

same questions, but the model outputs are different. be sure to re-run the model.

I put abbreviated versions of 3 tables (used in earlier tasks) in the memo, with the full version of the table in the appendix of the memo. So each of those tables were in my FA 3 times, with 2 being identical versions.

Submitted 5/8, DNMMR 6/17

This was my third attempt, and I'm at a loss for what to do next. I think I may get the feedback, even though I've heard multiple people say it's not very helpful.


1st attempt - All tasks need significant improvement
2nd attempt - Tasks 3 and 4
3rd attempt - Tasks 1 and 4

Same. I've heard mixed reviews on the feedback, though. I figure at this point, I must be missing something specific, so hopefully this will identify it.

1st attempt--2,3--definitely misunderstood the model this time
2nd attempt--3,4
3rd attempt--2,3--improved my formatting significantly

Did any of you try uploading the spreadsheet from the first attempt when doing the second attempt? The model results are different. I just don't want to change the numbers in my writing.
