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.
if I remember correctly on YouTube Collegevine has a video with some tips for the Cornell essay. Also depending on the word count you can essentially write a compare and contrast essay or just kinda write what your searching for and how that rules out other schools.
Some topics to include might be the collegetown aspect (Harvard in Boston etc) specific programs only at Cornell reputation of the univ like diversity. To rephrase the question why did you pick Cornell over other ivy caliber schools. If you have any personal relations to Cornell.
Also any statistics that you cite would be a good thing.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
Cornell is very diverse and is similar to the real world, since according to several sources, Cornell prepares you for things that many other schools don't. Located in New York, you get the hustle and bustle of people just trying to make it all work. They have a very strong engineering program and there is so, so much opportunity on campus. It has a beautiful setting and it is the youngest ivy league so everything about it is less dated than the others.
