It's a little early in my work schedule to determine, but let's talk mid-December. I will probably be there during some of those days - would be great to meet you.

In my case, the initial rejections were generally warranted and could be corrected, but the killer reason was apparent in the initial submission, and could have been applied immediately.

Don't think that it's easy to get them on. Over the years, I've had as many rejected as accepted.
