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.
Personally I'd try to do some significant SAT prep over the next few months before you take the exam. BC's SAT range is a 1320 (25th percentile) to 1490 (75th). Unless you have some kind of hook, like being a legacy or a recruited athlete, you usually need to be way closer to the top of that range than the bottom to get in. If your PSAT were to just be your SAT score, you'd probably be below the academic cutoff for BC. Your grades and GPA should be in fine shape.
Other than that, since they're a Jesuit school, BC really likes to see lots of community service and volunteer work on people's resumes (and that would definitely help your case too as a polysci major). I think they might even ask about service in their essays. There's probably going to be a ton of opportunities over the next couple of months to volunteer and help people considering the situation we're all in, so it might be good for you to take advantage of that opportunity if it's there for you.
