It's possible they turn to the waitlist sooner than April, but it will be a trickle at any rate. As people get accepted to T14s, they'll let Texas know they're not coming. In addition, come March 1, they'll know exactly how many applications they will be getting and will have an idea of what percentage of those they'll be accepting and matriculating, so the few folks on the WL for class management might start to come off.
Other interesting (but irrelevant*) information from the recent past: In summer 2012, in need of more high uGPAs and apparently having exhausted all of the high uGPAs remaining on their waitlist, they proceeded to extend a couple of acceptances to people previously dinged. This occurred in late July... around the 28th or so.
(* irrelevant because the odds of them making the same miscalculation a second time in such a short span is extremely low.)
