Common App questions
Most of my main extra-curricular activities are in 12 grade (senior year). So, is that going to reflect negatively on my application?
Also, can I mention more than one organization in the Activities section of the Common App for a particular activity like writing for several online magazines/blogs?

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 love to see that you are involved in any organization at any capacity. There is a chance that at some highly selective colleges, it could but most likely, it will not affect your chances. You can definitely mention your writings under the activities section. That is so cool! Best of luck!
