"Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages. I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it, and wish you the best of luck."

Form as others have received. I appreciate the speedy reply time and the correct spelling of my name and the title of my book :)
Dear X,

Full requested.

So, received the rejection today. She responded to my full faster than some agents respond to a regular query! I started really studying her feedback, trying to understand what I needed to do to make it better However, I soon learned that her response to my full was identical to my friend's response to a full. The same response. So that makes me really sad. I mean, REALLY sad.

CNR; 4/14/17 ? It seems she tends to send prompt rejections/requests, but because I haven't gotten a response at all, I suppose I'm closing this one. Time to stop telling myself she's still mulling it over.

Immediate response. Congratulatory and respectful step aside. Seems like a great person to work with!
