I went back and forth with this agent for quite some time but she eventually passed. Some dates that might help those of you querying her:

65k literary fiction
EQ: 7/5/16
Full Request: 9/2/16
Request for revisions: 9/29/16 (She emailed and said she *almost* took it but has reservations and that if I were open to feedback, she would offer some. We spoke on the phone and she was very sweet and as helpful as she could be, even though she didn't have an easy "fix" in mind.)
Revisions sent: 1/15/17
Final rejection: 3/5/17, with an offer to pass it off to a younger agent in the agency, which I declined.

Even though it didn't work out, I benefited greatly from Elisabeth's feedback and know that I am querying a better novel because of it!

CNR 2/10/17 She has only a 13% response rating, so I'm sure this is dead in those waters.
