    Does it matter when you apply?

    I'm trying to schedule out which applications to prioritize. I know that Michigan has rolling admissions, but does it matter when you apply to most other programs regarding admission and financial packages?

    I'm also applying to Columbia, UPenn, Harvard, MIT, Boston U, NYU, Rutgers, Cornell, Tufts, and UMass-Amherst.

    Thanks!

    I am not part of those Unis you listed, but I am on the admissions committee at another, and the answer here is "NO" - it does not matter when you apply as long as you apply by the deadline... this was the case at the previous two Unis I was part of as well... for what that is worth.
