Another thing to keep in mind is that the day on which you begin counting days will determine the day when the time period in question is finished.
The deadlines in a real estate contract are usually tied to the "effective date"--the day when the Buyer and Seller have both completed all signing, dating, and initialing of the offer/counteroffer, and it has become a contract.
If your time for obtaining a mortgage is a 30-day timeframe, then begin counting days the first day AFTER the effective date.
Regardless of the contract used (whether FAR or FAR/BAR), the count must end on a business day, not a holiday, or weekend day. So, if the 30 days end on a Saturday, Sunday, or national holiday, then the next business day becomes the last day of the time period being counted.
In addition, the time period for making mortgage application is part of that 30 day period, so (if you're counting 30 calendar days) you may actually have fewer than 30 days to obtain a mortgage commitment.
You may want to talk to your real estate agent and loan officer to decide if you have allowed sufficient time. Good luck with your purchase.

And why aren't you asking your buyer's agent this question?
When you write an Offer, you will either write "30 days" or a specific date.
This may still be variable, and subject to an Extension:
The Title Company normally sends the Principles the date of the Escrow Closing.
Good luck and may God bless
