    Which one will you be applying ED to? That will obviously be your best shot, although you are a competitive for all. U of M will be a solid match.

    You are a highly qualified applicant for the schools you have listed. Like #1, ED will boost your chances of getting in. Also, make sure to write good essays that are genuine and convey who you are. You have amazing stats, but other applicants do as well, so a good essay will help you stand out from the crowd. Good luck!
