UG Consulting Recruiting going terribly...next steps?

Hello!

Just some background about myself. I got to a T25 which is like a semi-target. I have a low GPA (3.4), and I took the GMAT this past summer to maybe help hedge against that (730).

Simply put, recruiting has been going awful, and I feel pretty lost about the next steps. If I was getting interviews and getting rejected, I'd know I need to work on my behaviorals or casing. But I am simply not getting past screening. I feel like it is getting likelier and likelier that once recruiting is over, I won't have a position or I'll be forced to pick a firm with low comp/few opportunities. 

Are there any tips or words of advice that any of you might have?

perspica, what's your opinion? Comment below:

This is fairly rude and condescending- aside from possible personal issues, you don't even know OP's major or school rigor. Quite frankly, at my school, I know a great many Operations Research, Info Sci, and other engineering majors who would be over the moon with a 3.4
