Yes, most companies do not hire full-time outside of their intern pools. In many cases these interns are completely hired prior to end of 1st semester, 1st year, before students have completed a single class.
Regarding french cuffs. Students do wear them. These are generally students who think "more is better", ie the guy I mentioned previously who had a Vacheron constantin watch and $400 Brioni shirt, he wore cufflinks. So some students do it. You gotta ask yourself, do you wanna be that guy? Oh by the way this guy wore KC brown slip ons every day.
