Depending on how your do on your GMAT's you can really have potential to any of the top programs. Your GPA will be a problem, last year someone else who also had sub 3.0 GPA from top school with admits from H/W so right now you can really open up your options if you get a strong GMAT and have a good reason for your low GPA.

Goodluck on your GMAT's

Basicly if you had any reasons besides I was drunk, I joined a frat, I was drunk because I joined a frat. The other way is also that you were stupid then and you have matured.

Any reason I give you is gonna be a canned reason, you may need to dig a little deeper and evaluate what is an excuse and what is a good reason.

I have a way lower GPA, so I'm probably more optimistic about your chances. I believe you really should focus on GMAT's because a low GPA and low GMAT would hurt.

If you take your GMAT's in october/november that would still give you 2 solid months to work on applications. I would not worry too much about it.
