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.
Essay Review works on an honor system -- plagiarism is technically possible, but no more likely than on any other online community for feedback on your writing. Collegevine also can help users verify they’re the original author.
Colleges use internal plagiarism checkers to compare the essays of their applicant pool -- they don't have access to essays posted on CollegeVine.
