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.
Hi @Znchome! Thank you so much for flagging this issue! We are actually in the process of updating the percentile data for a handful of schools. They will be fixed in the next few weeks!
In terms of where the data comes from for all schools - we have our CollegeVine data from 5+ years of working with thousands of students. We also conducted independent research to gather data for students who have never used CollegeVine before because we know how important it is to have data that represents the entire population instead of CollegeVine students only.
I'd also like to assure you that we take data privacy very seriously. All of our student data is secure and protected. We use it to improve the free tools for students and we do not sell it!
Thank you again for posting this question. We appreciate your effort in helping make CollegeVine better for all students!
