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.
It's going to depend on what your grades for math have been over the last few years and what schools you plan on applying to. If you're going for an engineering program you need be able to demonstrate strong skills in math on a consistent basis. This means good grades and good standardized test scores or great grades/test scores if you're planning on applying to top schools. One bad grade can probably be made up for with strong test scores but if your grades haven't been the best it's unlikely getting a good score on the SAT math section can make up for that. You could look into taking the SAT II math tests and if you score well on those (I'm talking perfect scores or close to it) it might give you a slight boost too but overcoming bad grades can be difficult.
I'm happy to answer more questions if you have any and good luck with your applications!
