How long does it take for the DA's office to determine whether or not it will move forward with a case?

Question Details: I was charged with offensive touching for throwing water at my boyfriend during an argument in the school's library. A security guard called the police against his wishes and I was arrested and charged. We have a no-contact order. When he found out about the charges and the no-contact, he called the prosecutor's office to drop them. A lady said she would speak to the DA. I am asking how long will this take for them to get back to him? I want to see him again and the charges to be dropped.
