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.
The chancing calculator here is one of the best out there. That being said, there are many factors that it does not consider, like recommendation letters and essays. So of course it is not completely accurate as it is only based on test scores, GPA, course rigor, activities, and demographics. But it is fairly accurate for what it can do. Think of the chances for your schools from this as a baseline that can improve or lower based on other aspects of your application.
