Full request through pitch wars. Sent and confirmed the same day :2/16/21
Rejection with some detailed and specific feedback. Offered to take another look if I revised. It's not really an R & R since the feedback seemed to be focused on the first 4 or 5 chapters, but I logged it as one so I would remember to resubmit if I do revise. 5/11/21

"Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to read your submission. We appreciate you considering us for representation of your work.
"Unfortunately, after careful review, we have decided to pass on this submission. This industry is incredibly subjective, and there are many agencies out there with many different tastes. It is for this reason that we strongly encourage you to keep submitting elsewhere, in the hopes of finding an agent who will be an enthusiastic champion for you and your work.
"We wish you all the very best of luck and success with your writing."

ER 4/25/21 - she had a TON of feedback, both on the things she liked and what she found confusing. It sounds like it would have been an R&R situation if I didn't already have the offer. Very kind and helpful in general! Would recommend others to query her, for sure.

website says you can re-submit to a different agent, but the form letter rejection was signed from the The Bradford Agency, so not sure how to read that.
