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.
This question depends on the majors and programs involved. You usually can't apply to two separate colleges within a given university. So if Business and Engineering are in separate colleges (as they are in most places), for example with UVA's Darden School of Business and UVA's School of Engineering and Applied Science, then no, you can't apply to both in the same application year.
However, if you're interested in multiple majors in the *same* college, for example English and Chemistry, both offered in UVA's College of Arts and Sciences, then you can list multiple majors you might be interested in studying on your application. You could even potentially double major in both. Importantly, you're not *applying* for these majors in this case—you're just applying to the College of Arts and Sciences and indicating what you may want to study. Your choice there is not binding, and you could change to anything you want within that college. But transferring to another internal college like Business or Engineering would not be as simple.
