According to the stats (in the reports tab if you have a premium acct), the average response time for a full reject is 112 days, with a minimum wait of 0 days and a max of 659. This is over a reported 384 responses so it's actually a good sample size.

My take is dwelling in the wait is a waste of time, though yeah it's hard to avoid sometimes. Good luck!

CNR: 11/6/21 (after no response to email asking for confirmation of receipt of original query)

A little confused because her response rate is so high.
