Default requesting confirmation on carbonation time

I brewed a Brown Ale (1.012 fg). It sat in the primary for 2 weeks and another 10 days in the secondary. I waited atleast 5 days after it reached FG.

A few days ago, I bottled them but I am not sure how long I need to let them carbonate. I have read everything from 3 days to 3 weeks on these forums.
Please advise.

If you can keep them at about 70 degrees, they should be carbed up in about 3 weeks.
