Two months to reject. Literary. Assistant replied, as with others below.
Variation in written rejection to others posted. Even used my name. Small pleasures.

Dear Vincent,

Thank you so much for your query. Although this sounds intriguing, I’m afraid it isn’t right for Susan. Her client list is very full right now, forcing her to be extremely selective about taking on anyone new. I encourage you to continue submitting your query to other agents, and I truly wish you all the best in finding enthusiastic representation.

Thank you again for thinking of Susan.

All correspondence was with Susan's assistant, Catherine, so I have no idea if Susan herself ever did read the project herself.

Form letter via her assistant.
Thank you for contacting Susan Ginsburg about representation for FALLING BACK TOGETHER. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you representation at this time. Due to the large number of submissions Susan receives, she is forced to be extremely selective when considering new clients. After reflection, we don't feel that this is a perfect fit for Susan's list. Publishing is very subjective, however, and another agent may well feel differently. That said, you are welcome to submit to another Writers House agent.

I sincerely apologize for the impersonal nature of this reply—we receive hundreds of submissions a month.

Thank you again for thinking of Susan. We wish you all the best of luck in the future.

Form letter, however, the assistant was apologetic for the informality of it. (I don't mind, at least I got a kind response.)
