Admission status question

Hey there!
I’ve thrown my hat into the ring for a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Energy Engineering at UNT, having sent off my application on December 15th. Since then, the portal’s been stuck on “pending departmental review.”

Any chance I’ll hear back about my admission status by the end of February?
Would love to hear from anyone who’s been through the wringer with this process before.

Thanks a ton in advance.
