Rejected 2021
Motivation: The original manuscript received favorable reviews but the editor requested us to reformat it to Letter to the Editor. The revised manuscript was promptly rejected without external review due to lack of space.

Motivation: NEJM is obviously a great and reputable journal, so there isn't much to say about quality. Equally impressive is their very quick screening of manuscripts to determine if they are a potential fit for the journal. My submission was rejected for fit issues within 3 days, which I greatly appreciated as it saved me an enormous amount of time.
