Can anybody tell me if it is possible to get an internship or analyst position in IBD or equity research (equity research is prefered considering I am an INTJ) if I am coming from a non-target school of the Rutgers kind? I am currently a junior interning in Ops at a sub-par firm ( in my opinion and probably most on this forum) and everyday I'm bored to tears with with unchallenging work. I have a 3.97 GPA and military experience. Seems from what I've gathered so far that all the BBs are target - school whores for anything other than Ops.

    How do you network when everybody you know in the industry works middle office at best?

    You sure no alums from your school are in FO? If you go to a school similar to Rutgers, there should be plenty of alums in the positions you're looking for. If your school doesn't have a formal alumni book, you just gotta be creative with how you find names... linkedin would be a good place to start if you haven't already searched through it.
