11/13 - Submitted via email on 9/1/18 and waited 73 days with no response so I'm calling this a CNR.

This one stings a bit - they seem like such a great agency.

Still waiting. I think my query was just skipped, though I received an acknowledgement? Will wait a few more weeks before CNRing.

ER: 10/23/18

"Thank you so much for thinking of us for this project. We’re so sorry for the delayed response! We’d set your submission aside for further consideration and hung on to it as we deliberated.
Although we won’t be pursuing representation at this time, it was a very close call, and we would be happy to hear from you again on future projects if you don’t connect with someone wonderful on this one.
Thank you again for the chance to consider!
All the best,
Holly, Taylor & Molly

Stated they’d (Holly and Taylor) been deliberating my work and that was why they hadn’t been in touch. While they ultimately passed, they invited me to query my next project. As far as rejections go, this one is great!

Notification email says the TAT is roughly 8 weeks. See you all then, if not sooner!

A beautiful, short, polite, and encouraging form letter, but receiving it from your top pick for an agent/agency is definitely not easy. Here's to not giving up!

toomanypodcasts - QT has an "auto close" feature after 120 days. You can go into settings, then system preferences and uncheck the box if you don't want that feature.

I hadn't written this off as a CNR yet, despite querying on 1/8/18, and then today suddenly the "My Query Status" section updated *itself* to say CNR. A sign, perhaps?
