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.
There are thousands of applicants from Canada that successfully apply to Harvard and Ivy League schools each admissions cycle. It is no different than applying as an International student from any country. Getting in has a 96% failure rate. Harvard and each Ivy school have very detailed requirements on their websites and this is really not the correct venue to ask such an open-ended question. Or vague follow up questions. Typical requirements for Harvard are (4) years each of Foreign Language, English, Maths, and Science (and an advanced class in either Bio, Chem, or Physics), 3 years of History (US, Euro, elective). The typical unweighted GPA is 3.90 and the weighted GPA is 4.18. Middle 50% of SAT scores are 1460-1570 and Middle ACT scores are 33-35. Other factors include class rank, essays, recommendations, interview, extracurriculars, talent, intellectual vitality(curiosity), personal character, volunteer work, work experience, honors or awards, whether you are a legacy, development or recruited athlete, location, and they will also evaluate any other test scores you wish to volunteer like AP or IB scores, SAT II subject tests. They accept less than 5% of applicants and it is fair to say that more than 50% of applicants who have near-perfect grades and test scores are rejected (conservative estimate). If you can get passed the "clout" factor associated with Harvard, I suggest you look at any of the Top 25 colleges where you can get either the same or better level of education. Good luck.
