@mhkidd I did get a reply but I nudged with an offer of rep (it was a very nice step aside). I'd assume that I would have gotten a reply eventually anyway and that the second agent would have rejected me immediately after querying if it hadn't been allowed. (I generally always assumed that querying a second agent is fine as long as the website doesn't specifically state that it's not allowed.)

Does anyone know if Jennifer De Chiara has a policy about querying multiple agents within the agency (sequentially, after a rejection is received)? I don't see anything about it on their website. (Oops, I see this question was addressed below. @writingclouds, did you ever get a reply that would confirm it's ok?)

nrubino710 - FR is full request; ER is for a rejection, even if a form is used, the agent emails you their response; CNR is "closed, no response"

Hi! I'm new to query tracker and was wondering if someone could help me out with the abbreviations! I understand that FQ is "form query", EQ is "email query", PR is "partial request" but is FR "form rejection" or "full request?" Any others I should know? Thank you!
