I'm getting most my interviews in late january/february because I applied pretty late (complete last month). At this period will there still be acceptance slots to give or should I expect to get a lot of waitlists?

People do get in late in the process, but from my experience, it is a lot harder. I think as long as you interview before late Feb, you are okay. My suspicion is that when it comes to March, you are essentially interviewing for a waitlist spot at most schools.

I used to think it was harder to get in, but now I am not so sure anymore because plenty of my classmates interviewed late and still got in right off the bat. So the short answer to your question is probably, "Depends on the school"
