It looks like they have rejected on from 9/13 so I'm assuming (whether they planned to be open or not) they're going to respond to them. @nutmeg618

I'm confused. Did they really just open for two days or did they not intend to open at all? The QM Form was working when I submitted on the 13th - will they actually review the query or were they supposed to be closed?

@adr900 Just as a head's up to you and others, I think FR means "Full Request" rather than "form rejection."

I get confused sometimes by the comments here especially when I compare them to the agent's timeline and I don't see the green smiley.

According to Patrick's FAQ:

What is the meaning of the different abbreviations some people put in the comments?
Actually, I'd rather people not put that information in the comments. It's supposed to go in the official tracking system, where it can be sorted and organized.

But, since people do still post there, I'll include the "unofficial" abbreviations here:

EQ - Electronic (Email) Query
ER - Electronic (Email) Rejection
FR - Full Request
PR - Partial Request
CNR - Closed/ No Response
R&R - Revise and Resubmit
