Form rejection, but encouraging and fast, and not everybody gets even that much, so it helps. A little.

Thank you for the chance to see your work. Unfortunately, this didn’t resonate with me quite the way I’d hoped it would so I'm going to decline at this time. The publishing industry is rather subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. Therefore, I encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication.

In your search for the perfect agent you may want to check out I have found it to be a very helpful resource in targeting just the right agents.

Thank you for considering me and I wish you great success with your writing career.

I'm querying Ms. Richter after she favorited my #PitMad tweet. She asked for the first 25 pages so I'm going to call this a partial request.

After having my MS for months -- really, almost a year -- she finally got back to me. It was a re-submission after an initial rejection. This also was a rejection, but couldn't have been lovelier, with lots of helpful notes and an immediate reply to my email asking if I could resubmit with a yes.
