Feels good to be done, though it took 4 submissions. I paid for the feedback, it was surprisingly helpful, would recommend to anyone on their 2nd+ try.
Any general advice you can tell us about the feedback?

Do it ASAP, took me about a month to receive mine. I will echo what the previous user said and say it's quite detailed. On each task they breakdown exactly what they think I didn't do well and I feel considerably more confident for my next attempt.

I agree with msumath, the feedback is more detailed than I though it would be, giving me suggestions on what I could improve. I would pay for the feedback, send in the form (had to fax it), and follow up with them that they received it (they send you a receipt via email but I was paranoid they didn't get it, and I would have to wait even longer for the feedback).

I felt pretty confident that I would pass after making the changes to my last attempt. I would also read over your final submission a few times, just to make sure the changes you make based on the feedback aren't affecting other portions of the FA.

Grading seems to have stopped. It is possible that are letting the q grow for a future grading party.

And hopefully that is relatively soon because I just re-submitted today! 22 pages, 10.2k words. Paid for the feedback and am really hoping that the return is worth the investment.

There isnít enough submissions to fly graders out for a grading party.

I'm guessing the volunteer graders are just taking their time since the queue is relatively short. They don't feel as guilty putting it off a week since we'll still hear back relatively quickly compared to other test takers. I thought they only did a grading party when the queue built up. It wouldn't make sense for the SOA to purposely tell graders to slow down and have to pay to fly them out.

People on my team are starting to take vacation too. Maybe the FSAs were in a rush to get other things so they could take time off.
