Does anyone have a sense of how strict this agent is about the "three paragraphs" for the query letter? On the agency's website, they say one paragraph for metadata, one paragraph for the hook, and one paragraph for the bio. My query letter has a multi-paragraph "hook," but it is still <500 words.

I'm not sure how to close out after a full request but she requested a full 10/24 and I received a form rejection on 12/6. I suspect others are right that her request rate for fulls is high.

While it is frustrating to not hear back, no agent owes you a response to an email. They are getting hundreds of emails a month. I get cold pitched multiple times a day in my job and if I responded to every email (especially the bad pitches) I would never have time for anything but email.
