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.
It depends on your overall profile. Most of the time colleges look to see if you took more challenging courses offered to you, so the fact that you took the class kind of improves your profile in general. Of course, since your GPA lowered, that is definitely a downside but seeing that you are a junior, I am sure you can still fix that by working harder to get higher grades as well as picking the right courses. If your profile is generally strong, I don't think you should worry about this too much as there isn't much you can do other than try to raise your GPA. Seeing that you received a B (don't fret too much, a B will not significantly hurt you), I am assuming your GPA did not drop too much and that you can raise it again.
