Innovative project rejected.. Quite amusing actually.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hah,

    Just got a mail from msapp sayin that my project was not innovative enough.. Its quite wierd actually since as per my research (and Google of course), the software we are building has not been made as yet.. It also involves the implementation of a GPRS stack which we are building from the technical documents of the authors..

    So, now Im wondering if the Microsoft guys had actually understood the project or maybe they hadn't since it involves a bit of hardware interfacing... :)

    Better luck next time I guess....

  • The reason the format of MSAPP was changed from last year to the present one is that it's not easy for MS to evaluate different kind of projects on the same scale. It's not possible to find an expert of each and every field. Anyhow, all projects were to be evaluated based on the abstracts submitted, and you might not have mentioned all the details in your abstract.

  • They might be looking for something more on software rather than the project which requires Hardware interfacing!
