I'd say it's all about volume. Apply to everything, take a look at all the companies on levels leaderboard and shoot over apps + emails to recruiters. Don't let the rejections let you down, just keep applying. My application rate was something like 3% when I first started in the industry. So 3 responses for 100 applications. One material difference for me was putting unique side projects (not just class projects) on my resume catered towards some of my top company choices. Always caught peoples eyes.
