PitMad request 9/5/19
ER 4/29/20 with personalized feedback

Sure it was a long wait, but I can't remember if I've ever gotten personalized and helpful feedback on a query, and I really appreciated her taking the time to do that. Will query her again in the future if I don't get an agent with this project.
