I had a referral but there was no field to note that in the QM form, so I included it in the first line of the query letter. Response seems like a slightly personalized form rejection.

She sent a very nice and personalized rejection. She even gave helpful feedback which I know is hard for agents to do in their busy schedules so I very much admired it.
