naziarahman123: Two months if it's just a query that never got a response. If the other agent requested material and you have either a partial or a full with them, you'd need to wait three months to hear back from the first agent (or to check in with them).

Hope that helps.

Update: 7 1/2 months no response. I sent a revised version following an R&R from another agent. She thanked me for it right away. June ‘20.

It took a year to hear back on a full. She's nice enough, though her rejection was a very generic, form one.
