There is a good shot your firm won't even ask to see your grades. If they like you this summer and are looking for 2L SAs you're in.

First, it's not a good idea to post so much specific info on here that your colleagues/fellow summers/supervising attorneys/staff can figure out who you are. You're probably ok, but posting a ton of identifying info that risks outing you is probably not a great idea.

Second, I think it's highly unlikely that the grade drop screws you over. Focus on doing great work and making a good impression on the people you meet. I guarantee you that demonstrated competence is weighed far more by your hiring committee than the grade drop.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep that in mind for the future.
