For the competitive programs you want to target, I think the GPA could be an issue. I suggest taking a relevant course or two and earning an A, to demonstrate academic capability as well as self-awareness of a weakness and commitment to the MBA process.

Another area of possible concern is the goals. You mention three vastly different areas. Your goals need to be specific, defined, with a clear rationale and plan. I suggest reviewing my goals special report for some guidance on how to develop and articulate credible and compelling MBA goals.

With these two caveats, I think probably it would be best to wait an additional year, deal with these issues, and also try to get the GMAT as high as possible and continue your strong leadership and impact at work. Those steps would make you a viable applicant at the programs you mention – some would be reasonable reaches, some would likely be on-pars.
