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.
Use the chancing calculator. It’s not perfect but it’s the best one I know. And it is fairly accurate and is in my mind for ivy caliber school accurate with in a +-10% all of the time but is more like +-5% the majority of the time. Just remember this is what the algorithm thinks and it doesn’t count essays rec letters interviews etc it just measures rigor academics and extracurriculars.
For rigor I don’t know what opportunities are offered to you at your school but if no AP IB Honors classes are offered just put 8 ap classes as the algorithm doesn’t do well if you had zero opportunities so just artificially fix it.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification.
