MG, 55,000. Wish me luck!

Note: I had CNRed this because as you can see, it took over a month -- so don't be too quick to CNR.

Fast 48 hour rejection through SNAIL MAIL.

I sent in a requested manuscript over THREE months ago and haven't received any word. I even emailed her assistance (that was two weeks ago) and still haven't heard anything. I'm extremely frustrated. I'm tempted to retract my manuscript because I gave them an exclusive and have other agents requesting an exclusives also. But Writers House is such a well known agency that I'm hoping the wait will be worth it.
Anyone else having this problem?

I received a full manuscript request within 5 days. Yippie!
