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 the essay mentions something from middle school briefly, it's fine, but if the whole essay is on something that happened back then, it's not ideal. Colleges want to know what kind of person you were in high school, as that gives them the best idea of who you'll be in college.
So in your situation, if you didn't make the cheer team in middle school, but started the spirit team in high school, that would probably be fine, as long as the middle school part is not the focus of the essay. But if everything happened in middle school, then you might want to reflect on a high school experience that demonstrates the same traits.
Hope this helps, and let me know if you have more questions!
