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.
There is no set number. Also do you live in Texas? Rather than taking AP classes, Onramps classes offered by UT Austin would look better. Also consider what major you want to apply to. If you want to major in biology, taking and getting a 5 in AP Government might not help that much compared to taking and getting a 5 in AP Biology. Don't stress yourself out, take what will help and support your major/interests. I hope that helped.
@Solemn basically answered correctly. Since UT Austin reviews applications holistically, there's not going to be a set number of AP classes that you need to hit for each student. Some students might take fewer APs than you and get accepted and some may take more and get denied. It's going to depend on the strength of the rest of your profile. Generally though, the more rigorous course load you can take, while still maintaining good grades, the better. I would imagine 7 APs would probably make you at least competitive with the majority of students
