While my correspondence was with the agency's assistant, Maria did pass along some personal notes with the rejection. The assistant was very kind and helpful and Maria's notes were encouraging and detailed. I'd definitely query her again.

To those who received full requests: Did you get a confirmation on the full? I got a confirmation when I sent my partial, but not my full.

UPDATE: I e-mailed BD, the assistant, for confirmation and they did receive it. So, for others who got a full request--they do NOT send an automatic confirmation on fulls. Only partials.

EQ: 8/01 "Please do not query multiple agents at the agency simultaneously – if you don’t receive a response to your query within 4-6 weeks it means a no from the agency."
