Polite rejection after 45 days; Possibly a form letter. It's good to get a response nevertheless.

Thank you so much for your patience and for allowing me to consider your manuscript, ARJUN. After carefully reviewing your submission, I've determined that this particular project isn't the right fit for me at this time. I'm sorry I don't bring better news.

Thanks again for the opportunity to read your work. I wish you the best of luck in all of your writing and publishing endeavors!

@tophersghost056 - In the past year, she has requested something after 215 days, for what that is worth. It is a bit hard to tell about "usually" with agents, so you have to go with your comfort level, I suppose.

How long do you normally wait to CNR Ms. Weiss? I'm well past the point that she usually requests, so I'm thinking now might be the time to give up on this one.
