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.
I don't think using their application as opposed to the Common App will really show demonstrated interest. Many colleges have expressed that almost all of their applicants use the Common App to submit with a handful using their application; they also say it doesn't matter to them. No college I know have point blank stated that using their application shows demonstrated interest. That being said, submitting to one application portal and not the other doesn't make a difference. Plus, there are other ways to show interest in the school. However, I would email your admissions counselor at the school just to be sure.
