If by top schools you mean MIT/Stanford/etc I highly doubt you'd get in with a 311. You'd need a stellar GPA and significant research/project/work experience to make up for it. Even if you got a 170Q, that would mean you'd have a 141V at best which definitely raises some flags. I'd suggest either retaking the GRE if some of your schools have later deadlines, and aiming a bit lower. As long as you have taken considerable coursework in CS with your general electives and have had a good amount of work/research experience with CS applications such as algorithm design/ML/AI/etc (or whatever field you're interested in) you could argue you'd be a successful transfer in terms of major.
