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.
This usually depends on whether both essays are going to the same school—if the school would be receiving both essays, then no, you shouldn't be using part of the Common App essay in the supplement (because then you're making the admissions officer read the same thing twice and not really using all the space they give you to say new things). But if the supplement is going to a school that won't receive your Common App, then it's fine to reuse parts of it in the supplement essay.
