Having a hard time getting an internship

I'm not making this post to complain. Just to get some help.

I'm currently a junior at a large state school on the east coast and can't seem to land an internship, despite networking as much as I can. I have a good GPA and have had an internship before in investment sales, but having a hard time getting one for this summer. More then halfway through Febuary and still no luck. I'd really like to do repe right out of UG but don't mind doing IS for a while if I have to. Anyone else not having much luck?

For me it's getting the interview, many firms (in real estate anyway) don't seem to be hiring interns right now.

I actually managed to get last month an internship offer from an M&A boutique doing deals in a niche I like, and it took me about 350 cold emails. Don't lose hope.
