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.
Hey there, firstly u don’t need to stress about essays right now, because while writing ur common app essay u need to consider the supplements too and make sure that any information does not seem repetitive ( they might change the supplement questions for next year applications ). Right now, I just recommend maybe reflecting back on some of the important things in ur life and exactly what u want to write about. Do the brainstorming right now but u can worry about the actual writing later. Also, for good words, just use a thesaurus and maybe try to improve ur regular vocabulary. Hope that helps : )
Your question is a little vague, but if I was to assume what you were asking, it would be "How can I use better words to write essays?" One tip is to use a thesaurus. If you don't want to use a word like "nice", just look in a thesaurus or go on thesaurus.com and type in "nice", and it will give you tons of synonyms to make you sound more professional. You can also get a daily vocabulary word sent to your email by going to basically any dictionary website, and checking to see if they do that. For example, there is Vocabulary.com, which can help build your "word bank" tons. Just try little by little each day to learn something new, whether it's a new word or a new fact, progress is progress. Good luck! <3
Hi there. This is a super vague question, but I would love to help you out if you provide some more specifics. Since you are in 11th grade you definitely do not need to be worrying about your college essay yet. I know it's hard not to stress, but worrying about that now will only cause you additional stress.
