<p>Whats good, its been a while since I posted here, but I remembered about this site and thought it would be good for my q.
I been applying to internships but have not been getting any responses at all... I goto a top 10 engineering school with a gpa of about 3.5 in ee (major gpa about 3.6, had a horrid first term gpa<3.0 :p). My question is what do you guys do if you don't get an internship during this crucial summer (it looks like this will be my case). Research programs look like they are just as hard to get internships... I was thinking about maybe going to grad school so I would get another summer to do something, but dunno if I will be able to get into a good program (would want something like in the top 15 or so, just cos it would be kind of a disappointment to go from a top 10 to significantly lower rated school). A family mate in the industry tells me my grades are too low for grad school and pretty low to be a competitive applicant for jobs, or atleast the applicants he sees.
I am all ears, cos I am started to get a bit worried, time is running low and people in my school dont talk.........</p>
