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.
Unfortunately, there is no separate check box to include an essay score for either the SAT or ACT.
Perhaps that is a good feature to include in the future chancing profile because like you there are many students like me that got a 10-12 on the ACT or a 20-24 on the SAT essay sections.
I'm including these links to schools that value the essay portion and they have lists of schools that require them and schools that recommend them.
The way I would use these lists is try to find where your college list fits in. How many schools recommend vs require vs don't care about them.
You know this already but there is no way to make up for a low math score with an English, Reading, or Writing score. If you have time to take the Nov test, I would try to get your Math score up.
Good luck with your application process!
