Full Rejection: 4/15

The rejection was very kind and said Patrice read my manuscript along with her assistant. They said they both loved it and truly found nothing wrong with it, but it just won’t fit with the other titles Patrice has right now. They said they’re pretty positive I’ll find someone to champion my book, so there’s that at least!

I got a FR in Feb, nudged in May, but never received a reply. Should I assume it's a pass? I have a new manuscript that I would like to query.

Update: After revisions, I emailed in Oct to let her know I was querying again, and never got a reply. Has anyone who queried the normal way ever gotten a reply on a full?

Update months later: After my experience, I would honestly say that she's more than likely just happy with her list right now, especially as most of her new clients tend to have a large following and/or awards already. So is the way of the industry, it seems.
