Despite the sarcastic responses ITT, the OP's question isn't a bad one. Sure, "soft factors" isn't the right term, but there are definitely firms that place more weight on fit and personality (and relatively less weight on grades).

OP: The best way to get the information you're seeking is to get your school's hiring data for various firms—that's the most straightforward way of finding out which firms are less grade selective.
