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.
Being active in extracurricular activities is key. Volunteer, do something that brings you joy, and that others can benefit from. Colleges look at not only your grades, but who you are as a person, and what you do outside of academics. On the topic of academics however, keep those grades up! do not be afraid to ask for help when needed in classes, teachers want you to succeed. Try applying for school student association if that's your type of thing, do music, easy and simple ways to get involved that should be easy to to while having plenty of time to study and do well academically. Start thinking ahead of different classes you may take in the medical major at whatever school you are looking at and see if you can get a taste of what you may take. your school may offer dual enrollment, allowing you to get ahead. Taking things like anatomy and physiology may be to your benefit as well
Use those languages to your advantage. You could work at a local clinic, helping translate for those who need it. See what you can do to get involved through your National Honor Society, too. The best thing you can do is find something that you are passionate about and going to spend time volunteering for that cause.
