Default FA CDEF Memos - Sections?

Are you organizing your memos into sections for the different CDEF tasks? I was planning to only do that for the formal memo in Task 5 but some of the people in my study group are doing it for all of the memos.

Has anyone not "sectionalized" the informal memos and MMR'd?

For informal memos, I recommend referring to the model solution for EOM4, Task 2.

I originally didn’t put them into sections but then decided it would help the grader find the right sections to answer the questions. I don’t think they’re needed but it helped me not just bold the answers

Just got my grade over the weekend and MMR'd. I didn't have sections in the informal memos.

For all tasks other than task 5, all I did was to make sure I had the To: From: thing at the top. The body is structured just like a more formal email. Paragraphs & point forms & graphs if needed. Sometimes it was easier to give things subheadings but I didn't use any Data/Analysis/Conclusion kind of sections.
