How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I would say that one recognize that since they are test OPTIONAL submitting impressive test scores will still help you in the admissions process, but also recognize that colleges as a whole have been transitioning away from weighing standardized tests as heavily anyways and that the strength of your extracurriculars and essays will carry a more significant weight. I don't think that you should be too worried about the transition to test optional.
