What should I include in the Covid section on Common App
If I had a national competition that I was invited to canceled due to the pandemic, should I mention that in the designated section and if I should, should I just explain what happened or treat it as another essay and include how it affects me personally.
Also, I had applied to an internship over the summer which was canceled and I took two dual enrollment courses instead, should this go in as well in a separate paragraph.

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.
Don't stress too much about this I would say. Just write about what certain things it affected. Definitely go into the internship and the national competition. I wrote about my SATS being cancelled, struggling with online school, having a job during COVID, and my grandma passing away.
