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.
Renegotiating a merit offer depends a lot more on the colleges you've gotten into than your stats or grades. Colleges will typically give more merit aid out when they see that you've received a better/stronger aid package from another comparable or similar school. You could also ask them to consider you for more aid if you've had a big achievement since applying—like a big award or competition victory. In either case, you should write to or call the admissions office and ask them if you can be considered for additional merit funding.
I also believe the name of your high school was removed from your post due to the personally identifying potential of that name + your username. In the future, please do not include any personally identifying information in any post on these forums.
