    Well, its quite simple really. Here goes...All the dates which you have listed out, for the various universities, are the FINAL dates by which ALL your application materials(Test Scores, Transcripts, LORs etc) should be at the graduate office/your major department of the university. Any application material received after this date will significantly delay the processing of your application, and consequently your admission decision.

    As for the specific deadlines w.r.t some universities...

    1) For the university in Ohio, it has quarter system, unlike most universities which have semester system. There will be three quarters- Winter(WI), Spring(SP), and Autumn(AU). If you wish to apply for fall '13, it means you are applying for the Autumn quarter here. And since you are a non-us citizen(assuming!), your deadline for this univ is Jan 15.

    2)Virginia Tech- I think you know it already, but still...if you want an assistantship, deadline is Jan 15.

    3)Texas A&M- didn't really get what you have mentioned by its side!

    4)UPenn-From what I have heard, early decision is for those who apply very early(like right now) and get their decisions by November. Mostly(90%), if you have been accepted in an early decision by a university, then you HAVE to attend it. You can't enroll somewhere else. Of course, if you are rejected in an early decision by the univ, then you can apply/enroll anywhere else. Rarely, univs also give "DEFERRED" as the decision in their early decision, in the case of your univ here, if you get a "deferred" decision, then it means they'll consider your application with the next set of applicants at the final(REGULAR DECISION) deadline- Jan 1.
    Again, this is just my opinion. Would be better if someone else can verify it!!

    As for when to take your GRE & TOEFL, if you are aiming for these univs, finish off your GRE and TOEFL(in that order) by Oct 2nd week latest. Coz ETS needs about 2-3 weeks for your GRE scores to be posted online, before which you can't report these scores to the universities. So you need to have ample time after your tests to be able to report your scores in time.

    Hope this helps! And, best of luck!
