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 typically look at your classes in context with what is offered at your high school (or equivalent in your country's education system). So as long as you're taking the most difficult or rigorous courses available to you, you should have a chance. That said, it is typically harder for international students to get into schools like the Ivies than it is for American students, unless you can pay full price.
