I have decided today that I want to apply to University of Michigan Ann Arbor. I checked their essays and I have already written essays for other colleges that fit their questions. Even though the deadline for Fall 2010 is February 1st, I hear that they close the admissions process if all the spaces fill up. If I send in my application today and my school sends in the transcripts on Monday or Tuesday, do you think I still will hear a decision from them. Also, is it harder to get in as the deadline comes closer?
