From other comments, it seems Julia regularly doesn't respond to full manuscripts or nudges. About six months after sending my full, and one month after nudging, I decided not to wait any longer.

If only I had mentioned I went to U of C I'm sure it would have made the difference. Of course, I was for a time the only undergrad in the Art Department, thanks to Vera Klement, and that is a truly dubious achievement at best. Maybe not worth mentioning.

Anybody nudge this agent? If you did, how long did you wait?

Thank you so much for the opportunity to consider your manuscript. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like I would be the right agent for your work.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to consider your manuscript. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like I would be the right agent for your work.
As I'm sure you know, publishing is an incredibly subjective industry, and I wish you the best of luck in finding an agent who feels like a better fit.

Only marking her as "closed / no response" because I closed the submission after taking another offer. Otherwise I think she might've been getting ready to make an offer. I got a good vibe from her. She rejected my manuscript a few months ago, but agreed to take a look at a revision (that's why I marked her earlier rejection as a revise / resubmit). Just wanted to explain the data on the timeline!

Although not stated on her profile, she does not represent YA, but was kind enough to email me back that that was the case and I could try again with another agent from the agency.
