A fighting chance is an understatement. You have a pretty solid chance at biglaw unless you're socially awkward. Last year, people in the top 25% did pretty well.

You're in great shape. To cross the finish line, you need to research. Do your best to understand the industry, the firms you will be looking at, their relative strengths / personalities, etc. If you treat the fall recruitment process seriously you've got a terrific chance at landing something great.
