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.
Your summer course shows that you were keeping busy at a time when you didn't have to be taking classes but instead of working or doing something fun.
I don't think these summer classes will make or break your application. Since you mentioned that they brought your GPA down, I'm assuming they were taken through your school district. To make up the deficit, try to get better grades in your CORE which is more important to college admissions officers. Getting As in Math, Science, History, Language or English will get you noticed more than having a mixed record and getting better grades in electives.
Hope that helps, good luck.
