Not getting into diversity programs and panicking
Similar to a previous thread, but as an Asian female at a target with a 3.95+ GPA, I have not gotten into any of the women's/diversity feeder programs that I've applied to, like, CS Women's Mentor, PWP Women's Advisory Prep, YLDP, PJT, etc. I've talked with 2-3 analysts at each of those firms as well as HR for some firms too. Even before applying, I got interview prep and Services and upperclassmen who will be going to some of these firms.
This is super discouraging because I can't even get an interview for these programs which I know are feeders for female candidates and fill up most of the female diversity spots. It also sucks to see individuals who have literally no previous IB or finance experience on their resume and have not networked and have a lower GPA than me from a nontarget school can somehow get it.
Do I basically have no chance during regular recruiting now since the competition will be even more fierce? Any reassurance / advice / tips would be helpful.
