USC Campus Deadlines

Why does USC have campus deadlines that are earlier than the Fulbright National Deadline? 

Fulbright gives campuses the opportunity to evaluate and provide feedback for applicants before final submission. In order for our office to arrange meeting times with faculty committees, we need your application materials early.  The purpose of the evaluation and interview is to enhance your application.
