i have a questions about UC app

Is it true that the earlier we send the app( like the first week the app process opens), the more likely that we are going to get in?

    NOT TRUE. Whoever told you that is obviously trying to scare you. But get in your app asap, because last year, there was a huge problem on the last day, and many people didnt get to submit their app before the deadline. But they did allow them to submit it the next day, since it was their fault

While it is a good idea not to procrastinate on college apps, I doubt that any reputable college processes apps on a first come, first serve basis. If you just think about it for a second, it makes no sense at all. Everyone would immediately submit their app the moment it become available.
