@munchi5gal, I CNRd mine from two days ago because she requested someone else's after mine. from anything recent i can see she always requests fast if she's interested. longer requests might be offer of rep nudges. if you're attached to her you can wait if you think someone else might offer and you can nudge her with it, otherwise i think it's better to move on honestly

@munchi5gal - I just went and looked again and it looks like she has made full requests at the 84/85 day mark - so maybe she has a pile she wants to look at more closely but just needs the time to do that. So don't give up yet! Good luck!

@Madjack Okay I queried her on 8/18. Definitely going to call this a CNR. Thanks!

@munchi5gal - yes, a couple of full requests and a rejection the week of September 10th. Doesn't look like she responds to all queries though.
