No internship possibility at OMA? Must be due to fire safety regulations that don't allow more interns per square meter or they will have to install an expensive sprinkler system :-)

This was their reply last year, not for an internship though:

"Thank you for submitting your application. We will be considering your skills and work experience along with other applicants that may apply. 

Please understand that due to the overwhelming response, we do not have the capacity to respond to individual follow-ups, so please be patient and if we feel there is a potential match to our open position(s), we will contact you directly.

We will also keep you in mind for other opportunities that may arise in the near future for which you may qualify. 

Meanwhile, using your email address and password, you can login to our careers website anytime to update your application information.

And this one, some years ago:


"Dear [randomized],

^ Probably a standard 'boiler plate' rejection letter, designed to avoid bruising your ego.  A firm like OMA receives infinitely more applications than they possibly can accept -- be happy you got a response at all.
