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.
Harvard SCREA will be harder this year because there are fewer spots to fill in the Class of 2025.
If 340 students took a gap year and there are only 1663 in the Class of 2024, then this application cycle Harvard will be accepting fewer students.
Normally, say 5%-6% of Harvard admits take a gap year prior to matriculation or 80-100 students not 340. Therefore it you do the math they need to accommodate 250 add'l '24 students in the class of '25 so they can only matriculate 1413 students. If Harvard has normally accepted 1980 to fill 1663 spots then this year they will accept like 1682 students.
With regards to SCREA, last year they accepted 895 out of 6424 applicants for a 13.9% admit rate. This year I can't imagine them accepting more than 700 and they will get more than 7000 applications. So my best guess is that the SCREA admit rate will be around 10%, perhaps even lower like 8-9% if say 20% of the Princeton SCREA kids hop on the Crimson wagon.
