    You can apply for OPT 90 days prior to your graduation date... That's USCIS rule I believe... Moreover no offer letter is required while applying. Since you have one you can use it. As far as i know their is no way to expedite your OPT application during the initial 90 day processing. Clarify your doubts with you ISS DSO.

      I think you can apply for the opt before the graduation date. But you can always select the opt start date. Don't understand why your university does not allow to apply earlier. I believe uscis rules stands same for all.
