If you submitted early in the cycle (all of mine in july) when do you think I will start hearing rejections? When do most schools send out a majority of their rejections?

Depends on the school. Some schools will send out rejections in waves (happening right now) or ignore you until interviews are over (silent rejection).

Silent rejection is the worst because they let you hang on to hope lol.

applications are not necessarily reviewed in chronological order or invited for interview at time of review. Superstars, linked programs, associated UG institutions, URMs and others may be pulled early in the process. At pre-interview review you may get evaluated on all parts of application (think broad categories like AP exam from extremely well qualified down extremely unqualified). When these get added up they essentially become your interview priority. So you may get reviewed in August but priority doesnt get you invited until February
