COLLEGE APPLICATION: Should I apply early with a bad essay, or apply regularly with a good essay?

Tomorrow is the Early Admissions deadline at FSU.I'm generally bad at essay writing, so anything that I compose in the next 2 days wont be comparable to the ones of those students who have worked on them for weeks.My teacher tells me that they don't really look at it when it comes down to accepting you or not. That they base it on SAT and GPA. I really want to go to FSU and I'm freaking out.What should I do?!Keep in mind: I can apply during regular admissions (in a couple months), but it's easier to get accepted if you apply early (tomorrow).
