IB recruiting looking to get into S&T

Hey I am a sophomore small private school in the Midwest

3.5 GPA

d1 athlete

President of the school finance club

sophomore year internship working at a valuation firm and other extracurriculars of leadership and such and some modeling certifications 

looking for S&T SA 2024

I have been going through the ib interview process and I've been doing fine one offer and two more final rounds from middle market banks, all pretty good comp, and in the south to where I want to work (preferably Dallas or Nashville but I'd be fine with charlotte and probably Houston) however, I have recently come to the conclusion I want to do S&T instead I would enjoy it more for multiple reasons and I think I would have more success in too especially the sales. But I am not too sure where to start I have spent the last week reading everything online that I can but I'm hoping this post will give me some clarity. I've been reading through websites trying to find links to SA job applications or timelines on the site (ex: Piper Sandlers doesn't open till September) are most firms like this. The only connection in S&T I have is FI for Jeffries in NYC, and they closed up apps a while ago. Are most firms already closed or not open yet? do I need to specialize in only applying for equities or fi or change my resume up to tailor to one of the others? I have had a ton of success with IB cold emailing it's where I have gotten the majority of my interviews actually but I don't know who or where to be cold emailing so any advice there would help. And does anyone know any firms in Dallas or nash big or small that do s&t and please no equities in Dallas jokes.

Thanks all
