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 don't know what major you're planning to do but try to do well in competitions related to your major. There are actually quite a few competitions you can do in a variety of areas, so research them and find which suits you. However, if you are planning to be a STEM major, participate in the Regeneron Science Talent Search. Its winners include Nobel Prize winners, National Medal winners and etc. If you are an artist or a writer, aim for winning the Scholastic Art and Writing Prizes. Its winners include people like Andy Warhol and Stephen King, and it tends to be (from what I have seen) one of the best predictors of which rising creators will be influential.
