Will transferring to several schools affect my admissions chances?
My family arrived to the US shortly before starting my freshman year of HS. We moved around a lot because of my parents work and I transferred to a few different schools in the process. The disruption didn't affect my grades too much but there were some inconsistencies so I'm worried that might affect my chances. Does anyone know how multiple transfers are viewed by college admissions?

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.
Transferring schools, especially due to relocation, will not have a negative impact on your college applications. Schools understand this is something that happens to students. I found this article from the CollegeVine blog which I think might be able to help you answer any other questions you might have.
