Advice on getting a compliance summer analyst position?

Hi all,

I'm a sophomore looking for advice on how to get a Summer 2019 Legal/Compliance Summer Analyst position.

Some background info: I'm double majoring in finance and history. My GPA is in the 3.0-3.5 range (I know, I know, working on it) and my SAT score is in the 2300-2350 range. By the end of Summer 2018, I will have interned at 3 law firms. My school is a target but I have no clue if that even means anything for someone looking at legal/compliance positions rather than IB and other finance roles.

Would really appreciate any insight you guys can offer.
