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.
UC Berkeley and UCLA are very competitive for out of state applicants. However, their admit rates are approximately the same for out of state students. It's possible they might be higher as can be seen in this Forbes article (https://www.forbes.com/sites/kristenmoon/2018/11/15/uc-admissions-why-being-an-out-of-state-student-might-just-work-in-your-favor/?sh=2876e0a3527b). So your chances should be roughly the same.
However, the UCs cost around $66,000 for Out of state students, and offer almost no financial aid for these students. Thus if you want to apply to Cal or UCLA, you are going to want to make sure you can pay the full cost. In addition, the UCs are need-aware for Out of state students meaning that your chances could also depend on your ability to pay.
Hope this helps!
