A most definitely personalized, kind, and thoughtful rejection. All correspondence was with Susan's assistant, Catherine, so I have no idea if Susan herself ever did read the project herself, but Catherine is lovely and I really appreciated her time and effort.

Form letter via her assistant.
Thank you for contacting Susan Ginsburg about representation for FALLING BACK TOGETHER. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you representation at this time. Due to the large number of submissions Susan receives, she is forced to be extremely selective when considering new clients. After reflection, we don't feel that this is a perfect fit for Susan's list. Publishing is very subjective, however, and another agent may well feel differently. That said, you are welcome to submit to another Writers House agent.

I sincerely apologize for the impersonal nature of this reply—we receive hundreds of submissions a month.

Thank you again for thinking of Susan. We wish you all the best of luck in the future.

Form letter, however, the assistant was apologetic for the informality of it. (I don't mind, at least I got a kind response.)

Form rejection from secretary. Writers House does not allow simultaneous submissions, but after a rejection from one agent, you can query another agent.
