But you will never know when you will be picked or dropped. You may be first to be picked and last to be dropped.

You will not be dropped first even if you were picked first. The person with the closest destination will be dropped first.

You can always book this unless you are traveling with more than two passengers or with some extra luggage. In that case, you will have to book UberX.

This is beneficial for the driver too. They will get more trips and their downtime will be less. Uber charges extra for every stop car makes for a pickup which adds to the total fare.
