After 9 months, I'm calling this a CNR. I can't stand to see that lonely green smiley all by itself in a sea of red.

Her form rejection confuses me because all that this agency wants in the EQ phase is the letter, and yet her form acts as if she has "reviewed" the whole project. How can you "review" a whole entire project based on a query letter that has no sample pages + synopsis? To not want to see more based on the letter is fine, but it's a tad over the top to act as if a whole project was reviewed when nothing was actually reviewed.
