Many modeling agencies, especially in major markets like New York, specialize in only one particular look for their models. Some may only represent very high fashion models, and others may only represent commercial models. Others may only work with females, others focus on male models. If an agency is unable to sign you, don’t get discouraged; it’s important to get seen by as many agents as possible and on a routine basis. That is however, after you have the right experience and work under your belt.
If you live in one of the major markets such as NYC, you may be able to attend an appointment or open casting at the agency.
