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.
It honestly doesn't matter, because each college will calculate your GPA with their own system. But I would put the weighted just because it's higher. But the admissions officers are going to look more at the rigor of the classes you took and the grades you got in them, rather than your actual GPA.
