Once people get their fellowship they don't care. It's like your university GPA when you're applying for your second job, doesn't matter.....

if that's the case, would you be okay if SOA allowed people to skip all exams?

where do you draw the line?

these are things I want to discuss.

Whinging about it on the interwebs wouldn't be my first course of action that's for sure.....

If you're really competitive, then focus on something more important than that.

If you're trolling, then carry on, of course.

If you're a competitive person, think of how much better you would have done in a sales position.

Being able to take exams quickly is the least exciting skill one can have.

if you wanted a challenge, you would have accomplished something concrete, and not just pointed to tests you took
