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 def don't need to worry about applying to colleges yet—you have a ton of time!!
At this point you should focus on doing well in your classes and getting involved in extracurriculars. Schools like Harvard like to see applicants that have diverse interests and that have been developing those interests for years, so it's a good time to get started. If you're into sports, consider joining a sports team, since that's a great way to show dedication and get a leadership position.
Also definitely keep an open mind about schools, there are sooo many great schools out there that you may never have even heard about. If you like learning about other schools do some research on colleges in your area and try to take tours to get a sense of what college life is like! But again just try to do well in classes (take the hardest classes on offer at your school if you can) and get involved in extracurriculars and most of all HAVE FUN!! High school can be stressful but also you look back on it and wonder where the time went so definitely try to enjoy it :)
