This is 100% true in my experience as well. I hadn't thought of it before, but this seems like a major ethical problem for the industry -- from MegaCorp's perspective, internships are by far the best way to find junior talent, but access to internships is gated on being in a program at a top school with all the accumulated bias that implies.

I've seen some efforts at work along these lines, but nothing within even probably two orders of magnitude of the established internship program.

Curious if anyone is aware of companies offering entry level contract positions that aren't conditional on active enrollment in an academic program?
