Documents to send to Microsoft Student Rockstar Admin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys, i have prepared one cover letter that we can send along with the requested documents by the admins.

    What i am thinking is that, if we have a similar format, then it will become easier for the admins to look at it, and also will make their work less tedious and faster.

    You guys are free to copy and paste this same letter and take print out and send it to the admin along with the other requested documents.

  • Thanks for this Harshil.


    "But please mention too that - people are free to write in a  letter whatever they want."


    And if Admin really want to easier their work they could attach a sample letter with their email ... naa... But they hv not....

    even u have done a awesome job for the people- who could nt write a letter by himself to admin in  a easier format.   


    By the way Congrats to u for 1st position and all others in Rockstar Tentative list!!


    All the very best for ur future and for MSP Status!!!

  • Guys,

    Change the paper size to A4.
    Font : Calibri (Body) <---- This font comes by default in windows XP, dontknow about other OS.
    Font Size : 11

    Doing this will fit the entire doc in one page, you guys are free to modify it as per your needs, but i recommend to keep it the same as it will be easier for the admins to assess.

  • Hey its good Harshil, even i was going to send a cover letter, but yours is better than mine.. so I think i will send yours letter only.. and also I advice everyone to follow a similar pattern. so that its easier for the Admins, and though they have not mentioned the cover letter.. i think its a must..

    So do send in a cover letter without forget...

  • Thanks Yogesh. Congrats to you also !!!.

    I am now mentioning that
    "People are free to write a letter in their own format, or what ever they feel is appropriate. "

    This letter is not a compulsion. The only compulsion is mentioning your postal address along with the other 2 documents mentioned, so that the admins can post the gifts/rewards/prizes Wink

    My aim was just to help you guys, any of you must be having exams, so this can save their time, and also a reference, of what all things to mention in th covering letter.

  • "Use this letter at your own risk "

    There is nothing wrong in this letter, even i have sent this same letter. But this is just a formality i am mentioning so that no one points me out and comes complaining about something out of the blue.

  • @ Harshil.


    Well Said dear, Well their is no risk to send this Yaar

    Saturday, June 23, 2007 4:33 PM
  • Yes man, i know there is no risk in this, but i just dont want anyone comming and saying to me that because of my letter so and so happened, etc etc Stick out tongue

  • Ha ha ha... do u really think so.
    Sunday, June 24, 2007 2:16 AM
  • @Harshil, its a free ride, take it on your own risk.. so you dont need to worry about it...

  • hunh. the place(building) where we have to send our letter is adjacent to my workplace, SAPIENT(starting my job from this 25th june).
    now i'm thinking whether to post the letter or give it by person to them.
    what do you all think?
    which 1 will be a better choice

  • hey, lucky u.. drop it personally, and please give them one suggestion personally.. to give the notice of the safe retrieval of the documents by either mail or a new page where it shows the update status of the documents...
    Sunday, June 24, 2007 5:51 AM
  • Lucky, you can try meeting the admins Wink

    Or after some time you may try your luck there.

    And dont forget to suggest what varun mentioned.

  • I don't think that the peoples present in gurgaon are the real admins..


    may be they are held responsible for only distributing prizes.

  • Hey Sunil, we need a favour from you... As you said that you are just next to the building..
    Please can you go personally and find out the details of the competition,....
    We all are totally unaware of what MS is doing..
    People even tried calling at the MS office but nothing happened.. so can you please go and talk to them personally... it will be a great favour to all of us....

  • Hey man if you do happen to go over there, also ask about the Microsoft Student Partner thing. When will they start the process of MSP. Things have stopped since the contest got over.
