Disappointed I didn't get a response after seeing other people queried later than I did and got either rejections or requests. Closing this as a CNR.

FR: 4/1/20 (sent same day--received confirmation of receipt same day)
ER: 4/7/20--polite personalized rejection with R&R option
Sent R&R: 5/13/20 (never received confirmation of receipt)
Sent R&R again: 6/29/20 (Whitney is so great at responding and sending receipts of confirmation that I thought there might be a chance she never received my first email. Therefore, I decided to resend. Fingers crossed!) **6/30/20 -- Whitney confirmed receipt** :)

Huh, is there anyone else who didn’t get confirmation of receipt when they sent a full? I did not and I’m noticing in the comments this is unusual.
