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.
As this is a very broad question, I think you should provide some more info to help us out. But I'll answer it to the best of my ability. The better question is: what do you do when you aren't occupied with school? If you play sports, are in a band, or are an active member of a club, that counts as an extracurricular. The same goes for volunteering/working. Anything you do outside of a school that's more than a hobby (i.e. you've achieved recognition for it, competed in something, hold a leadership position, etc.) is fine. What's important is to show colleges that you care about a specific activity and that you're dedicated to it. If COVID-19 has ruined opportunities to participate in such activities, starting a blog or an online project is always a viable option - provided your WiFi is efficient.
