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.
From my understanding, test scores are still going to be factored into admissions just as much as they were before at colleges. Sure, you can still apply without a test score. But the standard for your ECs and essays would be higher at elite schools. At state schools a good GPA and good course rigor would probably have you level with most applicants. Test scores still mean a lot because of the altered or missing grades of this semester. Because GPA is now less reliable as a quantitative measure of academic ability, tests are the only other number colleges get. I'm not saying you automatically get rejected without a test score, but having one improves your chances, especially at elite schools.
