Bulge-bracket IB internship?

Hey all,

I'm a rising junior at Wharton, and this summer I'm working at the Private Equity group of Northwestern Mutual.

I want to try to aim for a bulge-bracket IB internship next summer but want a realistic assessment of my chances given that my GPA is 3.6 and I'm not sure how my work experience from my sophomore summer will be looked at by recruiters.

Any advice?
