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.
AP classes are supplemental to your chances of admission because they help prove that one is ready for college and that they have chosen to challenge themselves on top of potentially boosting your GPA. AP scores however will be less influential in whether or not you get admitted but rather whether or not you are eligible for college credit in that particular subject. The most important thing is to maintain your grades themselves. The test scores are at the mercy of whoever is your AP grader so they do not truly reflect you as a student. Don't overwhelm yourself with APbut do take on academic challenges. Hope this helps.
It depends! If you truly enjoyed and did well in these classes, I'd say that it may not matter. It's a well-known fact that colleges prefer the bulk of your classes to be APs, though, but don't be discouraged. The other parts of your application (essays, test scores, resume) will help you as well.
