I've sent out about 30 applications so far, but have received only a couple of acknowledgments. What is the etiquette on contacting the dept about my application? Should I drop an email to the contact person to ask them if they received by materials? Or should I just wait until I hear from them?

In my experience not all places actually send an acknowledgment. But I don't think that there is anything wrong with emailing the contact person to see if they got your materials. When I first applied for jobs there was one place that I emailed to update my info that had actually not received my app - so it does happen.
