I know it's early days yet, but looking at @BSheridan75's dates she seems to be reading out of order. The website doesn't say what the overall response policy is.

Nothing yet. I'm hoping the longer wait time means it's in a maybe folder ?Good luck to you too!

Orangrila, I asked about her response policy in the comments of her interview. Marie said Cari responds to all queries! She didn't offer a time frame though :-(
