I'm between attending Northwestern University or University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
I'm going into the biochemistry/ pre-medical route and I'm having a hard time selecting which school I want to commit to.
The tuition is going to be similar because I would be paying out of state for UMich.
Regarding medical school and the pre-med program, I have heard that UMich has a better program?

Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within it.
I'm trying to write an essay, but I'm having the hardest time getting started.
Should I write about my race? clubs? environment?

Now, the summer before our senior year, my friend and I are swamped with summer work.
We have 4 novels to annotate along with other things.
I'm almost done with my 3rd book, while she's on her 2nd book.
She asked me how much I have finished. When I told her that I'm on the 3rd book, she said, "Dude, I'm not even kidding. I might need to copy your annotations".
She's my best friend and all, but I don't think it's fair for me to just hand over my work.

I'm planning on applying Early Action (specifically to the University of Chicago).
But in general, is it harder to be accepted if I apply Early Action than if I apply Regular Application?
