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.
Colleges will definitely like seeing if you went to a rigorous high school and did very well, however, going to "bad rating" high school doesn't immediately throw away all your chances of going to an Ivy League, or any college for that matter. Take advantage of all that your school has. Take AP classes, concurrent, join clubs, etc. Maintain a high GPA and do well on your ACT/SAT. If you can show that you are a good student, it doesn't matter what high school you attend. Display responsibility and good academics. Colleges also look at more than academics. Do service, sports, or get a job/internship. Extracurriculars look very nice on college applications. If you are a good student, it doesn't matter that you went to an A+ school vs. a D- school. I hope this helps!
