This if from my personal experience. Applying multiple times does not help too much ! If you have applied, someone will definitely review / reviewing your content and activities. Keep continuing your good work. Will get the good news soon. Generally it takes time 3-6 months after nomination and based on previous contribution as well. For Sandeep it took almost a year. But. the main thing is he got it !!
All the best to you
AJ, I have a doubt, For MS MVP, should the members contribute on MS forums?
Also how many awards on every year? If possible please give details category-wise(how much award for every category?). I saw the categories here. And I have more doubts but will ask later.
