Lower tier management consulting firms

I will be graduating from a semi-target undergrad with a 3.3 gpa. What are some lower tier consulting firms I should aim for? Also, is it worth it to still network at big 4?

3.3 is good enough, at least based on numerous anecdotal evidence and I'd say Big 4 MC roles or even their T2 equivalents (S&, Parthenon, etc) is within reach as well, also definitely helps that roles are abundant and candidates less so. Just start reaching out and talking to full time folks.

Good luck, man!
