"We also apologize for the form rejection..." An apology through a form undermines the apology.

5/6/2016 Queried in person at a conference and she asked for a Full Manuscript with changes.
3/14/2017 Submitted manuscript with requested changes.
3/15/2017 Full rejected because she is not currently accepting YA and MG submissions.

She seems like a very competent and nice agent. Good luck!

I'm beginning to wonder if my query went through since everyone around mine has been answered. Did anyone else have this problem?

Replied: 2-24-2017 Received a polite rejection:
"Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.
