By submitting early do you get a notice to interview faster? Curious if there is any incentive to submit before a R1 deadline?

Some schools read the apps in the order they were received, other don't.

I don't think it provides any benefit to submit applications earlier for most schools.

A few schools, such as Kellogg, review apps in order they were received have been known to release decisions sooner for apps submitted earlier. Not sure if it helps your chances, but you may find out sooner.

It might not strengthen your app but you will get the result sooner.Also this does not apply to all schools.

Where did you hear Kellogg reviews apps in the order they were received? I was under the impression this is only the case at Columbia ad NYU among the top schools.

My understanding of this is that Kellogg reviews all apps at a particular deadline in random order. Once they read the app, they might release a decision early, but your submittal date has no bearing on their evaluation date. Can any Kellogg-ites confirm/deny this?
