Do you think that a candidate with a weak profile has a lower chance of getting admitted into a top school in the 1st round than in later rounds? A top school might not be willing to gamble on that candidate considering that better applicants may show up in later rounds. But in later rounds, if for example, better students don't show up, chances of the weak candidate improve

The idea is not to hope to get lucky. You have to be more realistic whether you have a chance or not. If not - think about what you can improve so increase your chances, or maybe consider alternative schools.
