Should I state which IBD Product Group I want to intern for in my Cover Letter and Interviews?

As some who is interested in DCM, should I state I want to specifically intern for that group?
I am asking this as I am wondering if it would hurt my options to enter IBD as a whole and they won't accept me to M&A, ECM for example. Or on the other hand, they would be interested as I am looking to enter a less popular product group.
