i can understand this as far as actual admissions are concerned, but do they honestly set asside applications for extended periods of time without any other consideration if they dont have the numbers? It seems like most schools look at them all, and then waitlist accordingly. Or am I completely off base in this?
Schools definitely review based on what they want the most. Not to say other people won't be reviewed accepted, but those with the ideal numbers will definitely benefit and wait less, in general.
