QM 5/14
Full request 6/28
Form rejection 11/29.

Pretty devastating. She's had my full for almost half a year. I expected better than a form rejection from her.

Reread some others and looks like maybe she added one line about liking the concept. Not very helpful.

CNR'ing after 120 days of sitting in her "maybe" pile. It seems like she doesn't move you out of the maybe pile until another agent bites. I will have to test this theory out if I get an offer a rep.

I was skipped too (8/23), but take heart!

She said during her "Office Hours" streaming show that if she doesn't reply in the first few days it means you're in her "maybe" pile.
