Her assistant Kayla sent out the rejection form with no feedback. I even requested some sort of feedback and never heard back.

All corespondences through Kayla, an assistant, which is cool. Got rejection email after 10pm...just seems unprofessional...I don't know. Just my opinion. Also, when it all comes from an assistant, does the agent even read until it's upgraded to full?
