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.
This platform is specifically for students applying to undergraduate programs, so just keep in mind that any info here won't be applicable to Harvard's graduate programs. Graduate programs base their admissions on your personal statement, strength of undergraduate transcript (especially in the courses relevant to the graduate degree you want to pursue), recommendation letters, and your extracurriculars. If you already have a BA and are finished with college, then you won't be able to change your transcript anymore, so the best thing to do would be to write the best personal statement you can, get strong recommendation letters, and do relevant extracurriculars at as high a level as possible. If you wanted to be accepted to a Harvard graduate program in Education, for example, it would be a good idea to get some teaching experience, like through tutoring, or working with an education non-profit. Hope this helps!
