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.
IMO It depends on circumstance; however, I honestly would just submit it as soon as you feel that your application is in the best state possible. If you feel that a major component of your application, like senior year grades, some extracurricular or competition, etc is something you need to wait for in order to submit, I would maybe hold off until later in the fall until some of that missing context will be added. If you’re good at this point and you feel confident in your application (I have a feeling this is one of your safeties, but if not then this still stands), I would just submit it as early as you can to get that decision back quickly. Of course, you need to finish that essay and have your application looked over by someone before you send it in.
