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.
Even a safety isn't a guarantee it just means compared to other applicants of your demographic you had a high shot but that doesn't factor in essays recommendation letters etc also i don't know if the system factored in intended major.
that being said you might want to ask an admission peson at UoW and probe into why you were waitlisted
additionally this year they might have had a whole bunch of 10/10 applicants and this year is an outlier
What did you put for ECs in the system? It can be tough to accurately determine the tier of your ECs and if you put them higher than what they should've been it probably bumped up your chances. You should start writing a letter of continued interest to increase the odds of getting off the waitlist as much as possible.
