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.
For those specific examples yes—named scholarships like Regents or Chancellors are usually offered to both in- and out-of-state students at schools like the UCs.
However, in *general,* merit aid at state schools will be offered much more to in-state than out-of-state students. If you can't get one of those big scholarships at a school like Berkeley or UCLA (or say the Robertson Scholarship for UNC, as another example), you're unlikely to get any other kind of aid from them.
