Request during DVPIt 10/3/17.
Have just nudged as it's been 10 weeks, but given the below responses, it's not looking too good!

Looks like "Thank you for sending me your query! I will be back in touch after I have had a chance to review your materials" is code for pass. If she's interested, she requests right away.

Got a timely (within one week) form rejection from this agent. "Thanks for sharing your materials with me. Unfortunately, I'm not the right agent for your novel. I wish you the best of luck." However, she sent the wrong form. I submitted a memoir query.

Hi betty_d,
Elizabeth requested the 10 pages comment be added to her profile, but you're probably fine either way.
