God, I hope not.

Ive been told that the only way it would affect existing offers is if you fail to graduate or drop below their medians.

Pretty sure that dropping below their medians wouldn't affect your scholarship money. As long as you graduate before you matriculate you're fine.

So if you have a 3.87, do relatively poorly, and now have a 3.83, you are fucked?

must...not...correct...affect/effect error...

Dropping below the medians shouldn't matter so much, as long as you don't update your grades to LSAC and your school doesn't have to take the hit on its incoming class profile. I suppose a really precipitous fall could call your ability to perform at law school into question, but I believe that would be the exception rather than the norm.
