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.
Looks like you're doing great as far as academics go so I would suggest trying to develop a stronger EC profile and break into more Tier A or B activities. This will help demonstrate that you are a well-rounded student and will give UW-Madison more insight on your interests and commitments outside of the classroom.
I'm a bit confused with your PSAT score but bc it's practice you should always aim higher in the SAT since it can make you look more competitive. Additionally, your gpa can change so hopefully you can maintain it, but most importantly, you need more extra-curricular. Try getting involved in your community more, but don't sign up to a bunch of random stuff. If were you, I would sign up to clubs that compliments my interest.
