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.
Despite being test-optional, colleges will still consider your SAT score if you choose to admit it. A high score can still increase your chances of being accepted. Most colleges take a holistic approach, meaning they look at every aspect of your application to decide if they think you would be a good fit there. Your test scores (if you submit them), your GPA, the rigor of your classes, your extracurriculars, your personal essay and who you are as a person, your supplemental essays, they all impact the college's decision.
As ajdekonik said they still consider it but some have test flexible paths usually substituting an interview for SAT score ex Drake. But SupertutorTV on Youtube predicts essays are going to be way more important assuming a holistic admission procress but as you are taking the SAT it still is a factor assuming you submit the score as test optional largely sees SAT like a recommended letter of recommendation really only can boost you except if you get a 1000 SAT and want to attend a top 50 school.
