@MR Work congrats on agent! That 50 pages request wasn't a partial request. She asks for the first 50 pages from everyone as part of query submission. It would appear it took her an abnormal amount of time to see your query and request the pages that should have been attached to your query email in the first place *( I've noticed people saying they are getting a 'partial request' after one day etc and I think that might be because they didn't read the sub guidelines that asks for 50 pages )

Duly noted about the letting everyone know though.
