It's not rational or irrational; It's probably just an unfamiliarity with the process. I know it can be frustrating when you're trying to figure out where you're going to spend three years, but it takes them time - there are lots of stakeholders who help in the decision: faculty, admission reps, the scholarship committee.
I also wouldn't interpret this as an indication of how they function in other capacities. After I got accepted last year and had follow-up questions, I would get answers back on my questions usually within an hour. If I remember correctly, the reverse-splitters waited a bit longer than the splitters in receiving acceptances last year. Because they're so splitter and reverse-splitter friendly, I would guess it takes them a bit of work to navigate those medians. Probably much harder than a school that has hard floors.
Hang in there. You'll be at ASW in no-time.
