When should I expect my ACT and SAT scores if I take them in March?
I go to [Name Removed] High School in Texas and I take my SAT on the 13th of March and the ACT on the 24th. I was hoping to get an estimate on when I should get my scores to start applying for colleges in the summer.

You'll usually get scores about 2-3 weeks after taking any given standardized test, though sometimes they can be delayed. In any case, you should have plenty of time to get them back even if you're submitting applications in the summer (incidentally, a lot of schools won't even open their applications until August 1).
The college board generally has timelines for their standardized tests so you can see when ACT results come out. The SAT takes just under 2 weeks for the scores to come out
