@sama - Based on my friends who have previously applied to YC .. it seems as if applications submitted in the last 3-4 days before the deadline, don't really get reviewed.

When submitted early, they would notice YC related views to their website and Youtube video. Unfortunately, when submitted close to the deadline, there were no views.

The YouTube counter has never seemed to work well with our reviewing software, so I'd ignore that.

That said we do get to spend more time on applications that get submitted early (as we've always said) so there is a slight advantage to submitting early.

We submitted early for last winter, and we noticed 4 complete views of our video, which was comforting.
