I guess it's the luck of the draw.
Yeah, mine was pretty terrible. Looking back through the five graded essays, I only got one substantive comment that wasn't "Check the model answer for what you should have said here." And I think her particularly suggestion was incorrect. And it's not like she thought they were good - I only got one passing grade.
Luckily I'm very satisfied with the rest of the program, and I think the model answers were overall quite helpful. But getting two low essay grades without real feedback 10 days before the exam was a real downer and induced my very first "Oh my god, I'm going to fail this thing." Maybe that was the goal, but it resulted in me watching Arrested Development to make myself feel better instead of doubling-down on studying that day.
