This is a good problem, but there were an unexpectedly large number of replies on the internship, so bear with us. The spring deadline has passed, and we're just barely into our replies. No news isn't necessarily bad news. Thanks to everyone who contacted us, and thanks for your patience.
For the vast majority who we won't be able to accommodate, your letters have been read and appreciated, and if you sent us an app, you will have a reply, even if it takes a little while longer than we'd all like. The high quality of the candidates is a little stunning. (We've privately joked about an intern assigned individually to every member of Congress.) Also, for those who specifically sought something for the summer, you should anticipate that you will be contacted somewhat after the folks here or who are ready to move here and ready to start immediately.
