Agent Stats Update 4

I've sent four more queries out. That means I've attempted contact with 60% of my selected agents. All of the rest require postal queries. I'm noticing that some agencies mention on their websites that if they don't respond within a certain amount of time (specific to each agency), an author should consider that as a rejection. I never imagined all agencies would respond to my queries (based on past experience), but I am a little surprised to actually see this as a standard policy. Ah, well...

20 Agents Selected
12 queries submitted (10 electronic, 2 postal)
7 queries awaiting response (average wait time: 18 days)
5 rejections received (4 form-letter rejections; 1 personal rejection)
1 request for additional materials

Average response time: 11 days
