I'm using the Transfer Common App , are there different essay guides from colleges for that on here?
For example, I'm applying for Reed (as a transfer thru the common app) and the question for the essay guide on here is different than what's asked on the common app - a 250 word minimum personal statement that addresses reasons for transferring and objectives I hope to achieve. Are there any resources for transfer students I could find on here, specific to what specific colleges on the transfer common app are looking for in essays and such?

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.
