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.
So to answer the question, yes, I would say your ECs do seem to reflect your major. I also agree with @crsgo0422 that you should focus on the depth of your ECs and not the breadth. Having said that however, I think it's also important to consider that not every EC you do HAS to be related to your intended major. Colleges still want to see who you actually are as a person: hobbies, interests, the things you enjoy that make you...you. Those things can be just as important as ECs that reflect your major and colleges want to know about them. They can help you stand out from the crowd otherwise you can come off as someone who might be "boring" if that makes sense.
