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.
So I keep answering similiar questions to this so if it isn’t super specific please comment so I can clarify as I’d be glad to help you.
All rigor is evaluated in context if you have 4 APs at a school that offers 4 APs your golden. If your school offers 25 APs and you take 5 APs the 4/4 is more impressive despite the 5/25 taking more AP classes.
If your school has no AP classes as long as you take as many challenging courses as possible such as Honors you should be in decent shape but if no honors are available you are zero out of zero which is effectively a N/A (not applicable) so your rigor would not matter as schools will see you didn’t get the opportunity.
TL DR; Everything is in context as long as you challenge your self there will be no penalty.
