For one thing, domestic students are usually invited to open houses, so there's greater pressure to admit them early on so that they enough have time to schedule the visits. Also, international students probably tend to have fewer other offers, which would make them more likely to accept offers, making them good to have on an effective waiting list as the committee gauges the interest of the domestic applicants they've admitted.
Some of this is conjecture, mind you, so make of it what you will.
If you haven't yet, you may wish to look at profiles in previous years to see when other international students received word from the schools they applied to.

Should I wait until march or should I start searching in other places? It's not that I'm inpatient but I can search for offers in Europe. Should I start that? I've just added my profile here!
