Was really heartbroken to get a rejection as he was my 1st choice and I thought my MS ticked a lot of his MSWL. Just wasn't meant to be.

Same as others, typical form rejection. Super fast response, about six hours.

Withdrew: 06/02/19. James passed on the query to Natascha who's already rejected the DVpit query. *sigh*

The rejection came back in less than five minutes. It makes me wonder if it wasn't an automatic rejection and the query was never looked at.
