Anybody have this agent upgrade a partial to a full? Happen to remember how long that took?
Not that the answer will necessarily apply to my experience... I'm just restlessly acquiring lots of information to try to soothe my anxiety while I wait for responses on partials and fulls. Actually only one partial. The other agents wanted fulls. Which is why I feel extra-special uncertain about this one partial.

ETA: Nevermind, just got a rejection on the partial. I did get some personalized feedback, which helped dull the sting a little...
