The query confirmation email explicitly asks to notify in case of an offer so Lee can respond quickly, but I notified and never received a reply.
4/29/21 - Lee emailed apologizing for missing this one, with congratulations on the offer,

Received a confirmation email immediately. Just like @celiawrites said, very clear and contains a great communication framework.

Lee’s query-received email was one of the best I have seen so far. It provided a good framework for communication, as well as feeling welcoming.

"Thanks for thinking of me for this one! I'm sorry to say that I don't feel that this is the right fit for me, and therefore I would not be your most effective advocate. Unfortunately this is a pass from me, but I wish you the best of luck! Best, Lee (Please excuse the form response--due to the volume of queries it is not possible for me to respond to each one individually.)"
