First review round: 14.5 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
It took 14 weeks to get a rejection, which is not as bad as some journals. However, it seems a bit lengthy given that the rejections were not extremely deep. The criticisms were not petty for the most part, but they had completely overridden the positive reviewer's feedback.
