Hypothetical Mean

Commentary from an Actuarial and Economic Perspective

My Actuarial Exams are History

with 2 comments

I’ll never have to sit for another actuarial exam. My name is on this list. The pass rate was almost 50%, making it one of the “easier” fellowship exams in the history of the Society.

No matter, done is done is done. My remaining tasks to attain Fellowship in the Society of Actuaries are few. I have a “capstone module” experience and I need to sit for the Fellowship admissions course. If all goes as planned, I’ll be a Fellow on December 12.

It took an embarrassingly long time for me to complete all the examinations; I’m now entering my sixth year since I started. I lost some motivation during the “exam transition”. I also got married, bought a house, had a kid, am awaiting another kid, ran the Pike’s Peak Marathon twice, resumed my piano playing, and gained about 20 pounds of flab around my middle (after the aforementioned Pike’s Peak Marathons).

Been a busy six years. And fun … aside from studying periodically.

A public thanks to my beautiful and talented wife (BTW) for putting up with me. I’ll now have to find a new excuse to avoid chores. Let’s try one … “honey, I can’t change Charlie’s diaper because I’m writing a blog post” … think that will work?
