    I applied to Kent way back in November for Computer Science, and while my other four choices got back to me, Kent is still hanging behind. Is this normal? It's been literal radio silence.

    I didn't apply to Kent, but I have a friend who did. He's already heard back. :-)

    But hey-- don't worry. On the UCAS site it says that it's common for one university to take WAY longer than all the rest-- and this was totally true for me! I applied to York (in two different courses), Sheffield, Keele and Leeds and I heard back from Sheffield, Keele and Leeds all within a month of sending in my application... York on the other hand, well, my offer from them came in only a week ago. And that was a response to only one of my applications-- I'm still waiting to hear about History.

    My point is, don't worry. Universities enjoy taking their sweet time with these things!

    I got an interview from Kent. Check your emails or the Kent intranet as you may have an interview. This doesn't come up on your ucas app.

    Took about a month for a reply for me.

    edit: this is for computer science to

    I got an offer from Kent about two weeks ago. I applied in mid-December so was surprised at how quickly they responded. But it really differs from person to person and from uni to uni. I wouldn't worry if I were you.
