From what I see below, sounds like this is the standard form rejection letter:

Hi Simon,

Thank you so much for giving me a chance to see your work.
I’ve now had a chance to review your query and I’m sorry to say I don’t feel I’m connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms. So at this time, I feel it best to step aside.
Please know that this is a very subjective business and that tastes range widely among agents. Someone else may feel very differently and you deserve someone who is passionate about your work and is confident about their ability to position it.
I truly appreciate the look and wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Alexandra

The impression I'm getting from posts here is that if you get to the point where you need to give her a nudge, she's going to respond with a rejection. It does make me wonder why she doesn't just say, "No response means rejection," but at least she'll give closure if you ask.

I agree with others re: the 'maybe pile'
In essence, this allows other agents to pre-screen manuscripts, knowing an individual agent can't possibly read everything that looks half-decent, and that it's common courtesy to contact all outstanding queries upon offer of rep.
Kudos to other agencies such as BookEnds who reply right away in order to allow authors to move on.
I'm CNRing this one today.

@LElizabeth If you nudge after 90 days and she doesn't respond, it certainly sounds like it would be fair to move on.

I submitted a polite nudge to make sure my query had been received. Based on the tracker I was probably put into a "maybe" pile but...
1. It's been more than 90 days
2. She says on her Publisher's Marketplace profile feel free to "check in" if she doesn't respond within 6 weeks
3. Writer's House isn't "one and done." I think it's reasonable to nudge so I can start querying others if she ultimately decides to pass

@kciswriting - For what it is worth, agents are all over the map when it comes to how quickly they respond, and I'd absolutely look at the reports on QueryManager for specific agents before writing them off. I've gotten full requests at 77 days and 81 days, for example. This is especially true around summer or other times of year when agents are particularly busy. Obviously, everybody has to decide for themselves what to do, but I would warn against that 0.01% assumption. Some agents are a no if it has been three weeks, others are not until it has been three months or longer.
