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.
It's great that you're starting to think about how to add in some activities. You don't want to pick random extracurriculars just for the sake of having extracurriculars. You should ask yourself the following questions:
1. What am I interested in outside of school? (these could be things like movies, writing, sports, volunteering, animals, being a leader, etc...)
2. What am I interested in academically? (your favorite subjects, what you think you might want to study in college, etc...)
Then you can narrow down extracurricular options based on what your interests are and what your school and community has to offer. Even if your school doesn't offer an activity, that's an amazing opportunity for you to start your own club or initiative, which colleges love to see! You'll want to pick activities that align well with your interests, because then you're more likely to stick with them, grow, and make a large impact!
