Unhappy Medical school performance effect on matching

I wanna ask you guys , How critical is school performance in the process of matching ? I didn't do so good in my medical school & I was talking to a friend of mine & he told me that's it's crucial which came as a shock to me since I really haven't put that into consideration .
So to what extent is that gonna affect me , & if I get high scores in the steps will that decrease it's effect ? also I'm a U.S. citizen will that cushion the blow ? thanks guys, I really freaked out since I surely need no more obstacles.

Medical school performance has marginal effect on US matching.

USMLE scores, LoRs, PS, and USCE have much more impact on matching.

This is regarding IMGs.

For US grads, the story is different, for them med school performance and the MSPE is crucial.
