Ok, *sorry for spelling*

How long should an author wait to see if an Agent loves to represent their book? A week, three weeks?

Try closer to three months. ;)

Easily 3 months. Maybe longer. Is this off a query or a full? I'm assuming you mean a query only because of the title of the thread...it could be anywhere from a week to 6 months.

If the agent has a partial or full, it could be much longer than 6 months.

Patience is the name of the game. :)

I've had something out since mid-February...but no news is good news, right?

In my experience:
Response time to one page queries range from 24 hours to 5 months.
Response time to subsequent requested partials range from 7 days to 3 months.
Response time to subsequent requested full manuscripts range from 3 weeks to 6 months.

YMMV.
