I really hope to attend Wake Forest, though it is unlikely since I would need a considerable scholarship.
The two review stages, according to their e-mail, are:
Administrative review- Your paper copy has been received, your file has been processed and is currently in the first stage of review.
Committee review- Your file has been passed to the committee and is making the rounds of review. This step varies in duration and may be longer for some than others.
I believe, the senior admissions staff can make a decision to accept someone while in Administrative review if your file is really strong. If not, then you move onto Committee review. This is just my take on things I've read from last year's cycle, and have not heard anything from Wake Forest to back that up.
Wake is my first choice too. Good luck and hopefully you'll be able to attend.
Edit: Nevermind, I misread what you meant.
