EQ: 4/12
PR: 4/16 - technically not a "partial request" just that they wanted me to add the first 5-10 pages (I forgot to do that, lol) as promptly as I could, naturally I apologized and also attached the original query. That they went out of the way to tell me to re-submit at least tells me that they're interested, otherwise they would have not responded at all.

Reply from intern 4/18/17 stating "Thank you for your query. As per the submission guidelines on our website, please send the first 5-10 pages of your manuscript pasted into the body of an email"

I replied to intern on 4/18 stating, "Please note my project is nonfiction. Your submission guidelines state: 'If your project is fiction, please also include the first 5-10 pages... ' However, at your request, I am adding the first 10 pages to the bottom of my original query (below)."
