Pitmad Request - 6/4
EQ - 6/7 (with Full MS)
Rejection - 6/29 - very personalized letter with a lot of things she liked, and the reasons why she ultimately passed. Was the best pass I could have asked for lol

Has anyone sent a full after she closed to queries before? I sent a few days ago and haven't received confirmation of receipt, but an auto response that she's closed, so I'm wondering if the email just got auto-deleted ...

Update: confirmed receipt 5/27 (full sent 5/22) - i was worrying for no reason

@bookavid She has my full also and I didn't get a confirmation. She's requested other stuff of mine in the past and I never got confirmation emails but she always responded to the requests. I wouldn't worry about it! But if you don't hear from her in a long time, you can always nudge to make sure she got it. I would just wait until after her designated reading time for requests (can't remember if she said a specific timeframe off the top of my head) before inquiring if she's received or read it. :)
