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 think it depends on what application format you are using. I think it's between 8 and 10 available slots depending on the Common or Coalition. If this new activity is more important to your profile than than some of the other current ECs on your application, I would submit it. If not, don't. Also, if they are a course of significance like AP Physics C, well then you perhaps even list it in your academic record under classes taken. If you received a passing or good grade submit that as well.
Well, you do need to give some proofs of your extracurriculars, and instead, I would like you to do something more creative like building something from your knowledge, starting a FB page or anything you want to and then you can include them in your application through essays or something.
