Exact time for 24 check-in?

Ok, I know the thread title sounds like the stupidest question. But, I will soon be on a multi-segment itinerary, with the first flight leaving at 6:22am. The flight that I'm really concerned is my next one, which leaves at 8:51am. It's a trans-con that currently has me sitting in a middle seat, and I'm looking to get a Choice Coach exit row seat, 24 hrs out. In the past, does 24 hour OLCI open for all of the flights that day at the start of first flight time, or do they wait until all flight times have passed, etc? Are they usually right on time with the OLCI? I'm willing to wake up early to make sure I get the seat (and as a recent college graduate, the difference between sleeping in 3 hours in the summer is HUGE, haha).

Thanks!

You will be able to check-in for up to three legs of your outbound trip starting at 6:32am the day before your departure. If your outbound trip has three legs or less, you will be able to check-in for the whole outbound itinerary at 6:23am.

Doing this, as you probably realize, will give you a 2.5 hour jump on the people whose first flight of the day is the 8:51am departure.

Thanks for the insight! Yes, I didn't think of that advantage over those who will be starting on the 8:51 flight.
