Softs:
Master's degree in a humanities field from an elite program

Don't know about your numbers/chances but Michigan does give a boost (59.5% more chance of admission for each month - September vs. October, Oct vs Nov!) for splitters for applying early (see http://admissionsbythenumbers.blogspot.com/2013/08/applying-earlier-at-t14-does-it-matter.html)

Thanks. Yeah it seems that getting the apps in early makes a big difference for splitters

If $$ is an issue and you aren't 100% sure on michigan, don't ED.

Please do keep us posted. Super-splitters need all the data we can get.
