Very nice form letter:
Thank you for your query! I so appreciate the opportunity to review your work, but I’m afraid that it’s just not the best fit for my list at this time. Don’t be discouraged, though. Publishing is a marathon, not a sprint, and you just need one person to catch that shared vision. Best of luck to you!

I didn't get a confirmation that she received my full manuscript, but it does make me feel a little better to see I'm not the only one! It looks like there are several of us waiting to hear back from fulls, too.

Very, very nice form. I actually did not feel horrible after hers:

"Dear Kimberley,
