It looks like most people got ER's, but so far no response and more than 6 weeks.

I'm officially closing my 8/13/15 requery for Fairbank Lit as a CNR. No response to query and nudge, when the response time expired this weekend. I'll requery her with CR in November.

11/14/15--I requeried Sorche with Chain Reaction and heard back from her today--not a close fit rejection. Since I didn't get a response from her on Venom's requery, I'll try her again in 2016 in hopes to get a response this time.

2/24/16-On 2/8/16, I've re-requeried Fairbank Lit with Venom's requery, since I gotten a no response on Venom last year (see above) and a pass with Chain Reaction, last year, too. She passed this time--selective with picking new clients, not a good match.

CNR 1/5/17 (No word from nudge--but as stated her per guidelines, I'll requery her with DI again next month.)

Update: I got a belated R from them today. Not a match. Will try her in the future with something else.

Received a very warmly worded rejection. The note also explained that several queries sent earlier this year had fallen through the cracks of their system; but now the batch of them has been found and the agency is working to respond to them all.
