I usually call on Tuesday of the following week. Monday everyone hates so I skip that day.

4 or 5 days - enough time for the app to get to the right person and give them a chance to look at it

Give them about 2 wks, im sure they have a lot of applications and are overwhelmed .

give them 2 days. then call every day, so they know how interested you are. If they say "We'll call you on friday", call them on thursday and tell them "Someone told me to call back today" Persistence will make you stand out more than the rest
