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.
not much that would be different from most other really big competitive schools—start preparing early, try to have all your test scores and grades up within the range of students that they usually accept, keep pushing for leadership and responsibilities in your extracurriculars, and make sure you spend time on your essays. UT requires quite a few extra essays—in the past it's been one big personal statement and then several shorter essays that each applicant needs to submit. those will take some time, so prepare for that.
