Help! - No Junior Year Internship Going into Full-Time Recruitment

I just finished my junior year at a top school and don't have any plans for the summer. I have had three professional experiences at a boutique consulting firm, in operations last summer, and a business development role at a startup. I am set on going for strategy consulting full time recruitment so I don't see a reason to settle for an experience this summer that wouldn't be relevant. Would it be better to just find anything to do this summer or try to do some sort of pro-bono consulting? Would love to hear any advice from anybody that has been on the other side looking at applications. I have been preparing heavily for case interviews and networking, would hate to have this be why I miss out on an interview.

I haven’t been on the other side reading applications, but one of my best friends went into FT recruiting with zero (yes, zero) relevant internship experience and spent her junior summer traveling around and crashing with friends who were doing internships. She got interviews at all 3 MBB and is now working for one of them. Takeaways: 1) you’re fine and 2) for UG recruiting they are much more interested in the person than the resume

Compared to IB, consulting has less of an issue with striking gender balance. Plenty of females apply at the analyst level, so while it maybe helped, my point still stands.

I'm incoming at mckinsey with no internship junior year. I did have a top internship sophomore year though, but as above person said, they care a lot more about your behaviorals and how you case than a junior internship

Also I’m a non diversity male, so it’s possible for non women too
