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.
If you're applying through the Common App, you will only have to write about your work in the activities section. That should be enough. If you wish to talk about it in more detail, you can do so in the "Additional information" section or in your essays. Most colleges will believe you and won't ask for any further proof. You may also collect recommendation letters from people you've worked for: that will make your contribution more evident.
