PR (!) 6/13/18 from Erin Casey on behalf of Marietta Zacker
sent 6/13/18
Upgraded to FR 6/29/18 (wow, super fast)
sent 6/29/18

Passed 8/10/18 with the most wonderful, helpful, thorough critique I have ever received unsolicited in the query process. Erin was really able to specifically identify where certain places fell apart and why, and those were extremely helpful. Such an excellent process, and I'd rather have these critiques now in the query process than later on Goodreads, yeah? ;-)

Absolutely would resubmit again, and I hope to after a thorough edit.

Update: have had further discussions with Erin Casey and after I told her I was doing a thorough edit/rewrite and asked if she would be interested, she replied that she would like an exclusive on an edit.
