Apply to those early acceptance program during your sr year of college. You should land interviews into at least 1 of them.

Fairly good odds especially for deferred. Although you should know that IBD applicants are overrepresented in MBA admissions so you are going to need something to set you apart. Since they have a quota for bankers & consultants & they can discern prestige with respect to whether you were at PJT vs. UBS

Nah bro, work hard to deteriorate all 3.

Snarky comments aside haha, obviously try to improve every other aspect of your application to cover up for the part that might be lacking. Same goes for every other application for pretty much anything.
