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.
It's my understanding that the admission rate for international students is slightly less than students living in the US and many schoolscdo not offer need-based financial aid to international students. However, there is no separate criteria for these students and you can still e accepted if you meet the required credentials.
You should also consider that these are some of the more prestigious/sought-after schools and so your academics should be outstanding in order to compete with similar profiles from domestic students with a greater chance of acceptance. Best of luck!
Generally speaking, yes, it is harder for international students to be accepted compared to domestic applicants. If you are applying for financial aid then it is likely it will be even more difficult for you to be accepted.
As for your chances of getting accepted at those schools, I would use the chancing results you get from this site. I think asking those "chance-me" type questions are against the community guidelines.
