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.
With a 97 GPA you shouldn't really have much to worry about and your chances are definitely not ruined. Colleges will look at your transcript (of course) but different schools will look at them in different ways. Some may look only at core classes, some may look at every class, some might drop your 9th grade classes. Keep in mind your high school will also send a high school "profile" to any school you apply to. This profile has lots of demographic information and typically also provides a breakdown of how grades will work. The school will use this additional information when considering your profile as well. Sometimes a chart might be included in the profile showing the GPA ranges of the previous year seniors - I would imagine if your school does this you would still be near the top depending on your school.
That was a long way of saying you don't need to worry!
