For what it's worth, even if someone is not able to land an internship at at "top" company, it's my opinion that having an internship on your resume is worth more than personal projects.

There are a lot of good and well known companies out there that are hiring engineers and some of these are better than "top" companies. Sure working at one of the big ones is somewhat prestigious and might get your foot in the door in an easier manner but for an internship you'll learn just as much as you would as an engineer at Google as you would as an engineer at Target.

Apply to internships every year of school. I had one internship my Jr -> Sr year and that was enough for me to get a job I am quite happy with, but there was a Fr -> So in the internship. For internships your class year should not matter, just try to get something on your resume toshow that you are productively filling your summers.
