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.
Berkeley does admit engineering students by their major (as do all the UC schools). What this means for you is the competitiveness of EECS shouldn't affect you when you apply. However, you do need to keep in mind that engineering majors at Berkeley are generally going to be pretty competitive, more so than just getting into the school in general. While that shouldn't discourage you applying in any way, it is a good thing to remember when setting expectations for yourself.
Hope that helps answer your question but feel free to reach out if you have more!
