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.
I'm in a similar position to you. I'm just starting to prepare, and I am in my Junior year. Of course, no one can say for sure whether anyone will get in except for the admissions staff at the schools, but the fact that you're significantly improving does give you a shot. No one is telling you to be perfect and have no flaws whatsoever. The advice I could give would be to keep doing what you're doing. The more you improve, the greater your chance!
So there is no such as perfect application and even if you start prepping in freshman and are upper-class(meaning you have tutors admissions help etc) there's no guarantee to ivies unless your dad is bill gates or you are the best of the best in a field such as you are 1st in the US in something or you in Forbes. All people have a shot but there is no harm in applying especially if you have good academics and essays. Try using the chancing calculator to see where you stand.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as Id be happy to help!
