In a Manuscript Academy consultation with this agent, she requested an official query from me and 50 pages. Sent 11/30... not sure how long to wait. 12 weeks, I guess?

Originally queried in January 2020. It was a CNR.
Major revisions done since.
Completely new query letter with redone pages sent 8/14 with referral. Full requested immediately.
Offer of rep received from another agent 8/18. I notified Jen.
JEN OFFERED REP 9/01!
OFFICIALLY SIGNED WITH JEN 9/02! I SIGNED WITH MY ORIGINAL DREAM AGENT AFTER 8 MONTHS! It's possible, guys. Don't quit.

This agency is very specific about what it wants in a query letter, and it's different from the letters I've sent out to other agents. They want a 3- to 5-line pitch rather than a synopsis.
