Hey! I've made some good relations with a few middle market banks in my hometown. At the same time, I go to a good target school for BB's. If I don't succeed in getting an IBD internship the summer after my third year and get one at an MM bank instead, is being a full-time analyst at one of the BB banks that recruit heavily from my school still possible?

although 80% of new hires are from SA class, then they'll poach SAs from other BBs late summer, then if there is space left over they'll consider MM SAs - it'll be tough...

Does anybody have actual experience (or anecdotes from others) in doing MM IBD 3rd year summer to becoming a full-time analyst at BB?

It's certainly doable. I'd suggest that you continue your networking efforts, with the aim of being recommended for accelerated full-time interview processes.
