It's true that turning in your secondaries super early will give you a big or signficant admissions advantage?

This is the consensus. If you're applying for this year, don't fret. You have hurt yourself, but overcoming obstacles is what it's all about.
If you're applying next year, well, ask what the 2º essay questions are & get a head start. It can't hurt. Schools sometimes change essay questions, but sometimes they keep them the same.

yes.... the sooner you turn them in, the sooner you can get interviews, the sooner you can get in. the later you turn them in, the lesser your chances of getting in... for the most part.

absolutely!!! Most schools have a rolling admissions cycle. SO, there are X number of seats in the class, they sort of interview and fill them as they go, so if you apply late, there may be no seats left, and you will be competing for a waitlist slot only.

Another advantage, not as many people apply super early (June) so the reviewers get to your application earlier, and have a smaller pile to go through.
