I'm not the DAM, just an AM.  I can give you two answers, one from being
an AM and taking an educated guess, the other because I wrote the site
and know all the big secrets. Well, some anyway; actually they're not
that big...

OK, first of all, I'd say the DAM would do "easy" applicants first.
Easy means applications from AMs that write reports in an easily
digestable way and have a good history of good, clear reports.  The
applicant has nothing unusual about them either.  A good example is a
GPG signed key is "easier" than an ID.  I base this answer on how I do
things and some off-the-cuff remarks I have heard and might of quite
easily misinterpreted.

Secondly, the DAM sees the applications ordered by the date they
applied, not the date that the AM approved them.  I'd say they probably
process them the same way.
