This question got marked "Incorrect" because the past participle didn't have the "e" at the end: Je félicitais Julie pour être parti à temps. The subject/actor in this sentence could be either male or female. Should the past participle agree with the indirect object ("Julie", in this case)? Or with the Subject, "Je"? If the agreement is with the subject, then either "partie" or "parti" would be correct.
This relates to:Pour être allé = Cause for going (complex expression) -

the accordance of the participle should be with Julie because être partie refers to Julie. I always thought Julie was a female first name. Hence partie instead of parti.
