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.
You can definitely try it, but it's pretty unlikely as an OOS student to be honest. Still, it depends on the school, the program, and how strong you are as a student. If they've already given you money and you want more, it may be more likely than if they've given you nothing and you're asking for some. It also depends on the leverage you have—what other offers can you show them that would be better/cheaper? Schools use merit aid to recruit people. If you don't have anything like that, it's really unlikely that you'd get anything from them, because they know they wouldn't need to give you more money to compete with anywhere else.
