I understand your anxiety. However, you can't change your grades now. Apply and see what happens. If you really feel like know would benefit you in some way than contact your OCS.

Way bottom of the class at a T-30 is probably out of the running for any biglaw job anywhere.

This. You got a screener so they saw something about you that they like. Work on interviewing and coming up with some sort of explanation because the grades will come up in the interview. Also contact some alumni at the office and start networking so you can have someone to vouch for you.

Protip: there are lots of things about JD that they think makes them stand out. A little time on vault/chambers/etc. should make it clear to you what these things are. If those things are appealing to you, you should go out of your way to say so at your screener. JD is a firm that genuinely does care about its culture and will hire people for fit even if the grades aren't ideal.

I agree with this (I'm in the NY office) but bottom 1/3 is going to be tough.
