Can you get a SA position (at non-BB firm) after Fall semester?

Subscribe

I don't want to apply to BB firms for recruitment right now because
1. I'm on a leave of absence right now and a lot of the positions require you to be "currently enrolled" and I don't want to lie. I worked full-time on my leave of absence, it was for financial reasons, but yea..
2. I have a valuations internship this summer that I would like to add to my resume
3. I would like to raise my GPA at least .1 before I apply anywhere (would only take me one semester of decent grades, and going from working full-time to back to school I know I can easily do that...I have just under 3.4). IB recruitment at my school is really really competitive and I know that I won't get a BB SA offer anyhow at the moment. I am hoping to do some sort of internship next summer and then do full-time recruitment in my senior year. Is that a possibility if I start applying at the end of next semester (end of Dec?). Not going to lie about my GPA ever.
