Applying Early to ASU?

I'm a junior with a 3.0 gpa and 1590 SAT although I'm retaking it at the end of the school year and maybe in the Fall, too. And I'll be taking the ACT soon, too. I'm interested in the ASU Design School and have been in an art-based program at my high school where I take two periods of digital arts/graphic design a day, for all four years. Have also won some design contests. Hoping that will help make up for my low gpa, which is mostly because of C's in math. I'm not a math person no matter how much I study. I'm purely visual, hence graphic design. So my question is whether applying EA to ASU would increase my chances? On the website they say if you don't get in EA, October or November (they have two EA cycles), then you're chances are lost (unless they happen to defer you to RP but that seems like a gamble, too). Any insight would be most helpful!

    @stylebook Are you looking at Arizona State's website? ASU does not have EA deadlines. Generally, admissions are rolling. There are two referenced dates (these are for this admission cycle, but they were the same last year): https://students.asu.edu/freshman/requirements

    Nov. 1, 2014 – VIP admission date: Complete your application for admission by this date (including official high school transcripts and application fee) to receive these select benefits: expedited admission and scholarship decisions, priority access to ASU New Student Orientation and housing registration, and exclusive event invites and campus visit offers.

    Feb. 1, 2015 – Priority admission date - Complete your application for admission by this date to ensure you're considered for the maximum amount of scholarship opportunities. Late applicants will be considered for university admission and financial aid, but ASU programs with higher admission standards will give priority consideration to applications submitted by this date.

    Admissions for the upcoming academic year open in June of the prior year.
