Getting Full time interviews with BB Internship, low GPA

I'm a junior with a 3.4 GPA at a target LAC in math. I have good ec's(Varsity Athlete--potential captain). I'll have an internship this summer at a lower tier BB and some entrepreneurial experience. I was wondering if this gpa will hurt my chances for full time recruiting as I struggled to get SA interviews for this summer. Obviously my resume will be significantly stronger with a BB internship but will I be able to get interviews for MBB consulting jobs after this summer with a 3.4 GPA?

you'll be able to get it (MBB) IF your experience and recs are good...make captain and that will def. help

I got a full time interview with a GPA that was .4 (yes .4) lower than the MINIMUM they required...all about the experience to balance it out

You'll be fine. They're forgiving with kids from targets with ECs or hooks, and I can't speak about MBB but BBs LOVE former athletes. You will be golden. ECs + target + BB name brand = profit.
