Preparing for College

When Will I Hear from My Colleges?

Question: I applied to five colleges, Salem State, Bridgewater State, Rivier, Lesley U, and Arizona State. I sent all my applications out just before Thanksgiving and so far I have only heard from Arizona State. When should I hear from the other four schools?
