Worked there? Then wouldn't it technically be 0/4 at big 4 and 1/3 at MBB?

I recognize this is a touchy subject and I’m prepared to be wrong, but for MBA internships at MBB, I’ve noticed (anecdotally) that most of the folks who got offers from my M7 school fall into one of the “URM” demographics. Given that these firms are working harder than ever to hire diverse classes, do they try especially hard to “lock in” those candidates through the internship before they’ve been recruited elsewhere to other firms/industries?
