Major doesn't matter, but being a first generation college student could make for a good DS, depending on how you write it. If you're still in UG, take some easy classes and boost that major a lot. It doesn't look good when you have such a low GPA in what will be perceived as an "easy" major.
As for getting into McGeorge, no clue, check out:
Research people with similar GPAs and what LSATs they needed to get into the school(s) you want.

Had a similar undergrad major. People were right when they say it doesn't matter what your major is. I was just as successful, if not more so, than people with different majors but the same stats. So that shouldn't be a problem at all. However, as someone who also messed up freshman year and ended up with a low GPA, that will hurt you. Because no matter how much the school sympathizes and understandings, they must report your numbers as they are. Unfortunately, your reasons are irrelevant once your numbers are reported for rankings, etc. Just do well on your LSAT. Sounds like you are on the verge of breaking into the upper 160's, which is a real solid place to be.
