Reapplication to the same college
I got rejected from all the schools I applied to last year, and I'm considering applying to some again. I think my application was a bit rushed and not succinct, partly because I ran the whole application process by myself when I knew barely anything college applications in America. Now I've been able to reflect and provide enough information for my extracurriculars and essays. Will colleges, especially top-tier ones I applied to last year, make reference to my previous application or open it.

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.
I would definitely reapply. As to whether colleges will ask you, it depends on the college, but most will not make any reference to it. Like @adri said, plenty of colleges admit students who reapply, so in my opinion you have just as good a shot as if you were applying for the first time.
