Verified: 7/8 at 8 AM CST

If you're still applying make sure to submit prior to 4 PM. I'm pretty sure submissions after 4 PM are treated as submissions of the next day.

Many schools that track total apps received show around half of the number of applications as last year already - granted the numbers they currently show are primaries received, not secondaries. I doubt they significantly changed how many people they have working. I think I read they had 30 people doing it last year, so if they are a few days ahead they may have hired an extra person - seems unlikely though. I'd say they are either working more efficiently or the way dates fell this year, they may have had an extra day of work so far.

Last year was pretty slow compared to the year before, tough to tell so early but I wouldnt be surprised if it was quicker.

Last year, people who submitted around 7/12 weren't verified until around 8/15

I believe a better version of my question would be when are you 'under review', because at that point you are no longer able to withdraw. If I submit today on July 14, would I be 'under review' by July 30? How long does it usually take t o go from ready for review to under review?

You'll be fine. You go 'under review' right before you eventually get verified.

Submit to one school, and then add more schools on the 30th so in case you need to withdraw your application, you didn't just spend a lot more money on this application cycle than needed. Adding more schools will not move your place in the queue to get verified.
Also make sure to send in all your transcripts otherwise it can delay your verification.
