Georgetown can prepare you well for finance and IB, but is not one of the "go to" schools for bulge bracking bank recruiters. This does not mean you cannot get a job or internship, however, just that you might need to be more assertive in your job search. Certainly the key will be to land an internship, since most of the full time MBA hires for these firms come from their summer ranks. I worked for Goldman Sachs after b-school after doing my summer with them, and I had a GS colleague from University of Tennessee! He was very persistent in his job search. You don't even need to wait until schools starts to begin making contacts and reaching out to your target banks. in the end, IB wants dedicated, really smart finance whizzes, so if you nail your finance classes and stay dedicated, you can land the job of choice. If you decide to wait, I would at least get a deferral agreement from G'town, so at least you'd have the option to go there next year if you needed to.
