Please see "MBA Admissions: Low GMAT or GPA."

I think your best bet is to work for at least two more years and progress well on the job, earn a strong GMAT, and also take several classes and earn A's in them. You want to be able to show that you know how to achieve in an academic environment.

Good luck!
