Why am I getting interviewed?

I have an interview tomorrow with a top global strategy consulting firm not MBB but just below them, all of the employees I have researched have their degrees from Harvard, Princeton, Yale, MIT, Oxford, etc. I am in a top 20 business school with a double major and a modest 3.2 GPA. They contacted ME. Many of my classmates have much better GPA's etc. yet were declined. And on their website it says you have to have at least a 3.4 to be considered. They have my cover letter, resume, and transcripts so they are well aware of my 3.2. Why are they interviewing me? Is this normal for companies to state that as a requirement yet still interview below it?
