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.
Yes it can be about anything as long as it shows your character and reflects who you are. I would be careful with this subject though since it may be too tempting to only talk about your future and not your past (which colleges care a lot about). Thus i would recommend to discuss the experiences that led to this life goal and what caused you to want to go into medicine. I would focus on primarily your experiences and how that has shaped who you are and thus explains why you want to be a doctor.
Agree with @Ree1 that the essay focus should primarily be the experiences that shaped you into who you are & how they influenced your career choice, instead of just talking about how you want to be a doctor. Here's a great video that explains why I think this way & that goes more into detail about this topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PhK7n4Labg
The video is great overall but skip to 3:15 if you want to hear the advice regarding tips for writing about having a passion for science/biology/pre-med. Hope this is helpful!
