10/27: #DVpit request, submitted sample pages
11/1: full request
1/24: submitted full (I had asked for more time to complete a revision)
5/2: rejection :(

I'm really sad about this one but Beth was gracious at every part of the process and gave actionable feedback. She also apologized for the long wait (which I didn't find long at all given the current state of publishing)!
