Notifications of Universities getting your application...?

I applied yesterday and so far all I've got is an email from OUAC giving me my reference number.

How long should I wait to hear from universities?

Most should reply within two weeks. But some take as many as five.

Some universities only take a day or two to acknowledge your application, some take 3-5 weeks.

If I were you, I wouldn't expect to hear back from any schools until after the holidays.

If by the second week you don't get anything, talk to your guidance counselor or call a university.

For two universities it was about a day after that I received an email about my application. U of T took a month. Somewhere between a day and four weeks is a reasonable time frame.

Ottawa and Guelph contacted me within two days - Toronto took four days and Western waited a week. I applied before the holidays though - if you don't hear anything within a few weeks speak to a guidance counsellor because the majority of high school students apply during the holidays so their systems are probably on overdrive right now.

I applied for UofT, Guelph, and Waterloo on Jan 3. I got emails regarding the applications from Guelph and Waterloo on Jan 6 and haven't heard anything from UofT as of yet. But a lot of my classmates said the same thing. UofT usually takes their sweet time replying and acknowledging so hold your horses and don't stress cuz you'll get it eventually.

Rotman and Toronto Scarborough replied about two weeks later, and I received the ones from York and Toronto Missassauga in the mail, so it took a bit longer... McGill also sent me an email about two weeks after I applied. But does anyone know when I'll get a reply from Western? It's been like, a month already and I still didn't get anything from them.

Weird; I applied to Western earlier this month, and the next day I received an acknowledgement + instructions on what to do next.
