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.
If you have a change in your financial circumstances, you can always contact the financial aid office at the school you accepted your offer at and have your need-based aid reconsidered.
For merit aid, it's very unlikely that your scholarship will change after you've accepted the offer. If you're still concerned about your total package, having a conversation with your admissions representative from that school is a good first step. It definitely won't hurt!
If you're looking to enroll at a different college and negotiate aid, you're always able to withdraw from the original school and use Advocate for your other colleges. Remember though, you'll lose your deposit money and your spot at the original school, so we don't recommend this path.
