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.
I would say that this does not hurt you because you're school doesn't offer them. Taking the most advanced courses in your school is what colleges want to see. You could even look into taking some classes at a local community college or trying out some MOOC's such as edX and coursera if you're interested. You should be fine if you are taking the most that your school offers.
I would tend to say that it depends on what kind of universities you'd like to go. For schools ranked behind 30th it would not make much difference given your circumstances, if you have a great GPA. However, for a top school AP is kind of basic requirement. Self-learning AP is not that hard. You only need a Barron's AP book to get a 5.
