I queried around May 20. Website says they respond within 2 weeks or even within a week sometimes. I thought it's a good sign when the response was delayed. It had been an entire month, meaning 4 weeks, of having my hopes up, that I see their website update. How could my query, along with other authors' queries, get lost like that? That's no just an error. That's a mistake. What if one of the lost queries happens to be the next New York Time's bestseller and you just happened to lose the letter? Please be more responsible with authors' queries. We have affections and hopes that could be easily tampered with. I have decided to move on querying a more dedicated and responsible agent.

Thank you so much for your query, and for your patience as I've considered your work. Unfortunately, your manuscript isn't the right fit for me at this time, but I truly appreciate the chance to consider your work. Should you find yourself with a new manuscript to query, I hope you'll keep me in mind.

They seem to respond to all queries, so I'm wondering if I should try to nudge in the same e-mail chain (I re-queried in a separate email), or just mark it CNR.

She sent a brief note that said she enjoyed the premise and the writing but wasn't sure how to make it stand out, and invited me to pitch future books to her. Disappointing.

Nudged: 5/14/18 - Website says to email if you haven't heard back in 2 weeks. Its been 17 days. Maybe that's a good sign?
CNR: 5/23/18
Changed my status based on the following update she posted on 5/24: "STATUS UPDATE: I have read and responded to all queries sent on or before 11:59 p.m. April 15th, 2018. If you sent your query letter on or before April 15th, 2018 and have not heard back, please re-query following submission guidelines."
ER: 5/24/18 - Spoke too soon. Polite form rejection. Well, I'm pretty sure it was a form. But nice to have a response.

@B_RockNYC Yes, some agents won't read re-written work unless you send a letter beforehand outlining the changes you have made and asking if you can re-submit.

You never know, though, what the original rejection was for - it could be just the theme/genre of the novel and not the writing itself that turned them off. Dystopian isn't popular right now, for instance.

Lauren wrote one sentence back: "You already submitted this to me."
That was it.

I wrote back with an apology that I neglected to mention that I had a substantial revision in the many months since my first query. It was a newly written query with a new opening chapter, which she clearly didn't read.

I haven't heard back from her.
