My sister is on the UCSB waitlist. Does she have a higher chance of getting in because of corona virus?

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's really impossible to say, to be honest. this kind of thing has never happened before so we have nothing to really compare it to. i doubt even the admissions officers themselves could tell you what's exactly going to happen. the most probable thing is that it might be slightly easier to get off the waitlist this year than in other years, but waitlist acceptances are still really rare.
