In what order to colleges review online applications?

By | September 6, 2015

If I turn my online application in the day before it is due because I am reviewing everything to a “t”, does that mean it will get put near the end of the “to review” pile of college apps? I have heard that you are just assigned a (random) number, so it does not matter, especially since they don’t start reviewing till all applications are in. Yet on the other hand, I have also heard that the later you get it in, the higher the bar for admission is since there are less slots available.
