Hi, I'm a little confused as to how you're supposed to fill out the Contacts section of a college's Common App questions. Is it better to enter more "contacts"? Who counts as a contact? Do you have to actually know them or can it just be a student or professor you emailed/texted with a few times about the school or something related to the school? Clarification would be great--thanks!

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.
Thanks for clarifying! This is more of a marketing-related question than anything else. The school just wants to know how you learned about them, so they can better understand how their marketing is working. Having more people listed won't help or hurt. You don't have to personally know the person, so listing a student or professor is fine!
