@Wimoon - I had queried her 5/14 and if she has requested a full that same day, I guess I will CNR );

@aclermont & @Igrebowsky She DOES seem to do them in batches but confusingly she's been dipping in and requesting fulls from submissions as late as 14/05 which makes me worry that because I've been skipped it's a no. It's strange as she very much was quite regimented in her batch replies prior. Typical!

@Igrebowsky Not yet. Alexandra seems to check her queries in batches, and the last time she responded to most people here was on 4/24. :)

Seems to delve into the slushpile every 2 to 3 weeks, which is a real help as you can kind of guess when it's coming. Wish all agents had this system!
