You will hear as early as late October but realistically between Thanksgiving and Christmas for most schools if you apply when apps open.

It varies a lot. I applied to UVA and Mich in the first week of November. Heard back from UVA with an admission in mid December and got waitlisted from Mich towards the end of March I believe.

Applied to both Rutgers on the same day and got accepted close to 5 months apart.

Point is, don't sweat it too much because there seems to be little rhyme or reason in some cases, but the Thanksgiving-Christmas area is a fair estimate.

Definitely depends. I received acceptances from October to March. On their websites, some schools will give you approximate dates of when they will send out decisions. Some may promise to give you a decision within a few weeks while others might not even start reviewing until the New Year.
