Shnamgirl- My app was sent to Kent Jan. 1. I visited in January, went complete the first week of February, and have still not heard anything at all. So it's definitely not just you. This lack of communication has really given me a negative opinion of Kent. It's just unprofessional to not give me any information for more than three months. I've called and they just brush me off, saying a few more weeks. I'll be attending a school I liked better than Kent, so it turns out it's irrelevant, but I'm still disappointed by their admissions process.
Just a couple thoughts from a long-time lurker on this board:
Arual, it is surprising that Kent is taking so long with your app (especially considering they've offered mucho dinero to some students w/ similar or lower numbers... and speaking of that topic, the way they offer money is bizarre: seems like too much of a package to some students at or below 160, and not enough to some others with 160+). I'm sure you'll get in eventually, but wow, what a long wait. Good to hear you're happier with another school anyway.
I heard fairly soon on my app, but there were other things along the way that annoyed me (my award kept changing, i.e. subsidized and unsubsidized portions of my stafford loans kept shifting around so that the majority is unsubs now; also, in trying to negotiate terms of merit aid, administration would on the one hand be encouraging, on the other hand snippy or seemingly ignoring me, even after I did what they suggested I do). In the end, it was more substantive things that swayed me away from Kent anyway, but I have to admit I found their admissions process strange...
