IB chances

Greetings,

Hoping to get some help from WSO; wanting to know what and if I still have chances of breaking into IB.  Im currently a sophomore at a non-target ranked roughly 50 nationally in bay area studying economics with a mediocre gpa (3.0-3.5) playing sports and have only really started to consider a career in IB recently.  I am involved in a sports related club and planning on joining an investment banking/finance related club in the next year as well as completing an internship over the summer at a boutique investment firm in Northwest.  Wanted to know if I still have chances considering my gpa is as low as it is and I am so far behind in the typical recruiting process for IB.  

Thank you for the help!
