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.
If you really want to go to Duke, how could you possibly ask a question like #2? Take some time to sit quietly and think - why do you like the college? Why were you drawn to it? Do some research - what's something unique to the school that you really like?
Perhaps this link may help - http://tuadmissionjeff.blogspot.com/?m=1. It's got general advice, but it also has a section on "why college x essays." There's lots of helpful resources on the internet with regards to writing essays; this is just one.
Side note: In the future, please don't comment "please help me" and set that as the accepted answer. When you do that, people browsing through the list of questions will see that this one already has an answer, so they will be less likely to answer it. And as much as I don't want to admit this, many people do answer questions because they want to receive karma. Having their answer selected as an "accepted answer" is a big karma boost, but that can't happen when you've already selected your own comment as the only "accepted answer."
