form rejection -- either she's slightly tweaked it since the form rejections pasted in comments below, or she uses tiered rejections (in which case this one presumably is the bottom-tier, haha):
Thank you for sharing your work with me--and for your patience in
waiting to hear back. Though this is not quite right for us, please
keep in mind that this is one opinion in a very subjective
business--and another agent is likely to feel differently.

In case they would be useful to you, I've included a list of my
favorite resources below.

Again, thank you for sharing this with me. Best of luck with this and
future projects.

2/13/19 nudged her with an offer of publication because their website says to do so. It had only been 3 days since I sent the query, so I felt bad to have to nudge so soon.
2/24: I am CNRing this since I didn't get a response to my nudge, and I signed with a small publisher.

Dear xxx,

Thank you for sharing your work with me--and for your patience in waiting to hear back. You write well, but I'm afraid that I just didn't have that "Yes! This is for me!" feeling--so I'm going to bow out.

Whatever happens, I hope you will continue writing and sending out your work. In case they would be useful to you, I've included a list
of my favorite resources below.

Again, thank you for sharing this with me. I hope this finds you well--and writing.

All best wishes,

After a super helpful consultation with MS Academy, I'm revising the manuscript (protagonist changing from 27 year old to a middle-aged kick ass heroine - I'm beyond excited about this)! Jessica graciously agreed to take a look at the revision when it's ready. She's truly delightful, professional, helpful, and I've found her to be generous with her time and advice. I look forward to sending the revised MS her way!

Said my writing had some "wonderful, funny moments", referenced a joke in the novel that she particularly liked, and encouraged me to send future manuscripts her way - but she didn't have the "this is for me" feeling (like in other form rejections below). It's a pity, because I think it would be great to work with her!
