Summering at Boies, Schiller & Flexner, but poor grades

Anybody at a grade-selective firm can speak on this? I recently received my grades and they are below median and much below the grades shown when I was hired. Will the firm actually care?

I asked the same question about my poor 2l performance vis a vis going to a grade-conscious v5. Overwhelmingly people said it doesn't matter. I'm still a bit concerned but if I do good work and show enthusiasm I'm sure it's fine.

Relatively small summer class and not a perennial 100% firm so I would be marginally more mindful of quality of work. Do not mean that to panic you, just to be realistic, you should still be fine. No one here can really accurately predict your risk with any certainty, there are like 1500 variables.
