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.
Well there's not much you can do in terms of your grades or extracurriculars at this point. Unless you somehow find something outstanding to do in this short amount of time before applications are due. Some of the main things that you can do right now, however, are optimizing your test scores and focusing on your essays and application. Although many shcools are test optional, a good sat score can only help you. If you have a stronger sat than another applicant or an applicant that doesn't have an sat score, it can help you. Also essays are very important. A strong essay can help you get into a good college if other parts of your application are lackluster. Hope this helps!
I am just like you! While we are in this pandemic, we may not have much options regarding activities physically but we do when it comes to online. You can be a virtual tutor, start a blog about something you are passionate about, and perhaps do virtual internships. Physically, you can volunteer at your local community to help those in need, and get a summer job. Don't lose hope and use this pandemic as an opportunity to get creative with your activities.
