Question about HIV symptoms...

What time period would you start to experience symptoms of ARS/HIV? It's been 8 weeks since my encounter, which I consider low low low risk, and I have gotten sick. Started with swolen tonsils, then moved to general flu/cold symtpoms (runny nose, sneezing, just general low feeling). Normally I hear it happens 4-5 weeks after exposure. To add to that, I live in a fraternity house with 70 other people, and when one person gets sick, we all get sick, and a lot of people have been feeling like I have.

Thanks for the input.

2-4 weeks post exposure if one has symptoms at all.
