HI! I got my college essay reviewed on Collegevine. I was really happy about the positive feedback and criticisms. However (according to the reviewer) my essay belongs in the "bottom 41%" of essays apparently. I understand that each reviewers has their opinions but their feedback truly did not correlate to their rating of my essay. Prior to my submsission on collegevine, I shared my essay with college students who were quite delighted with my essay. I really don't know if I should really be concerned about it though. Please let me know your thoughts!

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.
You have to remember that when it comes to reviewing essays, no two people are the same. You seriously don't need to feel put down by somebody else's opinion. What I recommend, however, is that you follow some of their tips and resubmit your essay. The more people that review your essay, the broader and better the ideas that you receive will be. You did good in having your college friends review it, but College Vine has the extra charm of anonymity, and therefore, substantially less bias.
