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.
Our rankings are major specific as opposed to overall - so that would be why it doesn’t match up with US News.
For each major, we looked at a mix of factors including:
- Student outcomes (pay, graduation rate, etc.)
- Employer reputation
- Academic experience
- Quality of professors
Hope this helps, and let us know if you have more questions!
Id email email@example.com but I suspect it is a custom formula. But just keep in mind rankings don't really mean a lot as UCLA is better than Harvard in some aspects but UCLA is lower ranked than Harvard or for example, K State is tied for 170th best college but nobody will say its a bad school (except for possibly Jayhawks) but it has a top 10 design program (according to a design magazine). Also, US News factors in acceptance rate to its formula but that's an indicator of prestige, not academic capabilities to properly evaluate a school Id look at post-grad opportunities like placement rate average salary and professional ranking by industry experts not US News and US News like companies.
Hope this helps and comment if you need clarification!
