#PitMad request 3/24
Query sent 3/25
Full request: 4/2 (submitted same day).
Rejection: 5/16

The rejection gave wonderfully specific compliments as well as the reasons why she passed. Very useful!

80k suspense. She'd passed on an earlier version of this project, as well.

Kensi, I'm sad she hasn't responded to your nudges. She still has my fulll since Sept too. Firt nudge got a kind response but I just sent a second and its been 2 weeks with no reply so I may be in the same boat!
