Is this project real to make?

Hello everyone.
First thing, I hope I put this topic in correct subforum, if not I'm sorry.

I want to create a little project to put in my resume/CV/what's it called in US to help me in getting my internship as Junior Java Developer. I'm on my first year of CS, so the competition is rather ahead from me.
I should be familiar with Spring, Struts, Hibernate and some of web technologies like CSS and JavaScript. I'm currently on level of inheritance and encapsulation and I'm a bit familiar with CSS and JS.

My idea about the project: online chess playroom (with user ranking system, if I manage), with some chat and interactive tutorial. What frameworks could/should I use here and is this even real to make in 2-3 months with studying CS and Java on my head?

Thanks a lot for any guidance.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Chess? Possible. But before all that, you need to decide what kind of app is it? Web, desktop, mobile etc?

Going a step further. An app can be broken down to several modules or packages or entities. Take chess for example even though I don't know the rules, there's the board, the chess pieces, the player(s), the rules, the AI. The list goes on.

Thinking about it, such idea looks like a year long project from design to testing. Yet throughout the process, you sure will learn a lot, not simply Java.
