Here's how things look now:

Does submitting earlier in the cycle really make as much of a difference as myLSN is saying there? Never played around with the "Submitted between" ranges before, but having just done so it looks like one's odds go up by basically 10% for every school when using the August - November range.

My understanding is that your odds are improved at schools that do rolling admissions if you apply early (before November). Obviously it's a soft date, applying November 1st isn't going to change much compared to an October 15th or even September 15th application, but if myLSN is any indicator, applying early does clearly have a tangible impact. As with myLSN in general, it's a useful predictive tool, but not necessarily 100% accurate or reflective of admissions practices.

Pretty useful podcast by Spivey outlining the whole thing:
