Lower. Seats are filled (theoretically) on December 1st and you are competing for others for a lower number of seats until they are all taken.

Thanks for the reply! Do you think that I have a better chance than those who have been waitlisted already? I don't think they interview too many people after December 1st either

Some schools interview slowly (umich, Columbia...probably more but these are the ones I know about because I applied there) and a post-December invite gives the same chances as an earlier one. But most schools you have a smaller chance

As baronen26 mentioned, it varies a bit by school. Some schools begin interviewing later so your chances post-Dec 1. are still very good. For others, most spots will be filled by then so you're chances aren't too great at that point.
