Semi-personalized form rejection. Acknowledged that it met many of her #MSWL, however she was not enthusiastic enough about her ability to sell it.

I accepted Amy's offer on Sept 29! She's a great, very hands-on agent.

Like dtam3292, I got a rejection with my MC's name in it and a cool comment on her. The kindness is appreciated so I thanked her to tell her so.

Seems like a slightly personalized form letter; she mentions my main character by name, which I thought was nice.

"Thanks so much for thinking of me...Unfortunately, after careful consideration, I’ve decided I’m not the best agent to represent this book. I’m simply not enthusiastic enough about my ability to sell this work to offer representation. I wish you the best of luck with placing this book and in your future endeavors."
