Out of pure curiosity. I've heard of someone getting a full request about 2 years later on a project that had already landed an agent and book deal.
For me, 158 days to a rejection, and 131 days to a request. This is for a project that I queried for a little over a year before shelving.

I received a rejection a full year after sending the query -- it seems a bit silly to me to send a rejection that late. I'd already assumed it was a rejection, but I guess they were trying to be thorough. For full requests, it's never been more than a few months, but I've also read people say they received a full request up to a year later.
