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.
Since you did this when you were seemingly in middle school, I recommend that you leave it out of your application! You don't need to fill in all ten slots for the extracurricular section, so don't worry. It's not about the quantity of the activities-- it's about the quality (how much you're involved, dedication, etc). Make sure to emphasize the activities that you have focused your time on in high school. And remember-- colleges are not looking for students who participated in every club on the planet! Good luck throughout your application process, and stay well!
Tip: If your clubs and activities all have similar backgrounds (ex: political/ athletic/ or a certain subject), this will be a bonus for college apps, since this shows that you have an interest in something or a unique passion. To get into harder schools, you can center your application around this passion or interest to really stand out.
