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.
Hey @Arsema, congrats on your scholarship! At this point the best thing for you to do will be to try to appeal your financial aid offer with the school. Typically they have information on how to do that somewhere on their website. You'll need to let them know that while you're thankful for the scholarship you still can't afford to go to the school without more aid. Since you're an international student it might be more difficult to get more aid but it's worth trying.
I'd also recommend checking out the new program on here called Advocate. There's some good information on how to go about trying to negotiate more aid. They have steps on how to come up with a strategy and what you should try saying in an email or phone call. Hopefully the information is helpful for you. I can try answering any questions on that if you have any too
