Oohh thank you for doing this. I'm in the middle of a horribly discouraging search for my first required engineering internship.

How long does it usually take to get back to somebody when they submit a resume/cover letter? (aka should I be panicking like I am?)

Also is it appropriate to contact the company after a few weeks and inquire about my submission/what would be the most polite way to do that?

Tell that to my friends that have had parachute malfunctions and had to clear the issue or go to their reserve with seconds to make that decision. Or landing in crazy wind conditions. Or trying to find a safe place to land due to a bad spot. I mean... It's not being waterboarded and tortured, but there's more of a survival test to it than just falling out of a plane and letting gravity take you. Similar to any extreme sport really.
