Don't worry too much about your grades now. What is done is done. The fact that you've gone to an excellent undergraduate school, as well as your GRE scores, will nullify a little bit of your weak GPA. In my experience,  it is best to first do your own research on schools you want to go! I mainly applied to top 20 schools and did very well in Master's programs. I'm sure you would fair very well with good letters and SoP.
