I'm not sure about which universities would be a good match for you - that's really research you're going to have to do yourself. You didn't mention any research experience - that would help your application a lot. Also taking the GRE in Decemeber might be late unless you are applying to schools that have deadlines in mid-January or early Feb (especially for international applicants).

It does sound like a very late GRE date for Fall 2011, but it's possible.

I think my biggest worry would be the lack of research experience combined with the low GPA. Good research experience/publications can pull up a low GPA, and a stellar GPA can help overcome less research experience (especially if you're just going for a MS), but without either you might have problems.

Without research experience it might be hard to get into the M.S program. But due to to your prof. exp you might have a chance at a M.E (course work option) program. If your major GPA or upperclass GPA is significantly better it might help. I would still suggest that you apply to a few tier II universities. US News would be a good resource to know the average stats for most unis. Hope this helps.
