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.
I agree with the other posters, Syracuse is probably one of the best schools to look into for sports broadcasting. My uncle actually went there (he works as a media and TV producer though) and has been able to be involved with all sorts of sporting events. Other schools you might want to look into are Northwestern University (their undergrad journalism is supposed to be one of the most rigorous in the country), University of Missouri (has the oldest school of journalism I believe), Arizona State University also has a great program and will be considerably cheaper to attend than most of the other schools I mentioned. Finally, University of Southern California could be a good place to look too but also will be expensive!
Based on my limited knowledge of sports broadcasting, Syracuse University and Missouri School of Journalism because several well-known sports in the industry have graduated from both schools over the last few decades. Syracuse is both prestigious and highly selective, but based on your GPA and competitive nature, I assume your academics are pretty solid. I would suggest looking into these schools and narrow things down based on preferences, available majors and program rigor. Hopefully that can give you a better idea on what school is the best fit!
