It seems like you have some good reasons for the low GPA. Getting a great GMAT score will help. I'm sure you are working hard to get your GPA up, and make sure you finish your junior and senior year very strong. The admissions committee may be understanding of a rough initial start.
Three years of work experience by the time you attend business schools would be good.
And it seems like you have some great internship experience so far.
I do provide career coaching and pre-planning for people who are still few years away from apply to business School. I also provide leadership consulting and succession planning to family businesses. I would be happy to speak to you and see if I can help prepare you for the top business schools.
