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'm not entirely sure, but I'd guess it depends on how competitive those three schools are and how high they are on your list of most desired schools. If they're super competitive and they're your top choices, it might be worth it, as long as you don't have to sacrifice things that are more important to you to prepare for them anyway. If your time is limited, and you'd have to sacrifice a SIGNIFICANT amount of time you could otherwise be devoting to projects, extra curriculars, etc. that you're really passionate about in order to study, those passions might be more worth your time both for personal reasons and for the sake of your applications.
So I'd say it depends on how much time you have before your applications are due, how much you care about those schools, and how competitive those schools are.
