Is there any advantage to submitting Day 1 if the MSAR gives a later "Application review begins" date?

For example, the MSAR offers an "Earliest date primary application can be submitted" as May 30th, but an "Application review begins" of July 10. Is there any advantage to submitting before this second date? Thanks.

The theory is you’d be first in the giant stack but in reality hardly any school organizes their apps by submission day.

You’ll be very early submitting anytime in June

Of course you should ideally submit before application review begins, and I feel people to submit before July 4 to be certain. Going more granular depends on how complete your file is by this date (Casper, Preview, LOR, exam score, secondary submission [usually later than this date]).

Try your best to submit in June, but don't compromise quality (or drive yourself nuts) to submit the first day or the first week.
