3rd Year Summer Post-Cdn IB?

Recently managed to land IB at a top Canadian BB in Toronto for my sophomore summer (2023). Now trying to figure out what to do for 3rd year summer. On the one hand I feel like if I don't aim for top NY BB/EB/MFs, then I'm wasting an opportunity; on the other hand, I would be really happy to go back to my sophomore summer firm for FT. I also don't know if I can physically or mentally handle NY IB hours and the lack of sleep that comes with it.For context, I really have no idea what I would want to exit into post-IB or if I'd want to exit at all, nor whether I want to be in Canada or US long-term. Optimally I would get the chance to actually do my sophomore internship before having to decide for the following summer, but with how crazy recruiting timelines are, that's obviously not possible.Any tips/advice on figuring out what would make the most sense for me?

Hey kettlechimp, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I'm here since nobody responded to your thread! Bummer...could just be time of day or unlucky (or the question/topci is too vague or too specific). Maybe one of these topics will help:

More suggestions...

I hope those threads give you a bit more insight.
