Big 4 Financial Due Diligence Internship to Equity Research

Hey everybody,

So I'm a student at a tier2 target b-school (UT Mccombs, UC Berekely Haas, UMichigan Ross) with a 3.6 GPA and I have an upcoming internship with one of the Big4 in their financial due diligence advisory group. My full-time job goal is to move to either equity research or investment banking with the eventual goal of being an analyst at a HF

I'm concerned my prospects are low because of my GPA and I heard cut-offs are around 3.7. I wanted to ask your opinions on what are my prospects for getting a FT role in IBD or ER this upcoming fall? Does being in FDD help with seeking out that role.
