@mimic871, agents will often close in order to catch up with what they have to read, so I'm sure she'll get to yours. Good luck.

I have a full out with the agent, and see that she is now closed to queries. Does that she mean she is no longer reviewing what she has received or no longer reviewing anything new? Sorry if this is a basic question!

@Senorita_Marigold everyone should absolutely keep querying other agents, even if one requests a full! I'm not sure who gave you the advice to wait, but never do that. Some agents request heaps of fulls (Deidre Knight is known for it apparently) but it doesn't mean they are more likely to sign you up. I've seen published writers say they were rejected 200 times before they found their agent - if you waited three months for each one to get back to you, it would be 50 years before you got an agent. It is indeed very weird that we all have to go through this process assuming everyone's going to reject us, and it's dispiriting, but that's how it works. Keep going! You're clearly doing something right, if you're getting full requests!
