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.
Do you also have any honors courses? College classes seem to be weighted a bit lower than AP classes (since they’re most often taken at community colleges). So like CollegeVine might be seeing 10 AP classes, 0 honors classes, and a bunch of community college classes (which have diminishing value over large bunches). Depending on your demographic, that could very well be below UCB. A student that has 10 APs but no honors classes (like all other ones were just regular courses) probably would have a more depressed course profile, despite having a strong pool of APs.
