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.
This question is difficult to answer because it goes on a case by case basis, and each person will do this differently depending on the story they're telling. If you're doing Prompt 5 which is specific to an experience sparking personal growth, you'll want to choose an experience where you have a lesson that you learned, and throughout the essay hint at/explain the lesson indirectly with some conclusion and connection to the future at the end. One example from a YouTuber who got into Brown was that they had stage fright in debate and took off their glasses to solve it (they couldn't see the faces in the audience), but ended up debating better with their glasses on because when they looked into people's eyes, they were able to connect with them more and that made them a better debater. Throughout their story, they were able to allude to the ending lesson with that realization at the end.
