Anyhow, I think FSA used to be about par with FCAS, and ACAS has always been pitched higher than ASA. But in the past several years, the SoA has been trying to make the credential more accessible, and the CAS hasn't been. So maybe ACAS ~~ FSA? But I think only someone who has recently obtained both, or has been working on admissions committees on both sides, would really know.
