Is It Too Late for SA 2023?

I'm an international sophomore at a semi-target who started networking late March and up until now I've probably sent out more than 1000 emails. Everyone I spoke to said they've filled up their summer class for next year, and honestly, I don't know if I should just look for another alternative career path. I've been grinding since freshman year with multiple IB internships, business clubs, and case competitions, but because I started networking 2 months later than everyone else, it seems like I'm just not going to get any BB/EB/MM IB internship for next summer. My friends have told me to just continue networking, but I'm really discouraged by the fact that all the analysts I network with would just tell me that they've already filled up their entire class. What should I do?
