Hi April,

In terms of getting a reply to your query, my understanding from previous queries and just looking at their track record on Data Explorer is that this agency is a non-responder unless they want to see more of your MS.

So you'll see a lot of "CNRs" (closed-no response). Plus they've got one of the worst request rates. Meaning, I wouldn't expect any answers from them.

Please let us know, however, if they do give a response.

I sent a query on feb 9th/14 with a follow up March 26th/14 as i've noticed that even if it is a rejection they still send at least a form letter back. So fingers crossed I will here something from them soon.
