You will probably have a tough time with the GPA even though you you have great experience so it is hit or miss. Realistically, you are out at the t14 but maybe you should send applications in just to see if someone bites. The rest you have a chance at but splitters are always hit or miss. Maybe you should add George Mason if you like the D.C. area: it'd be more affordable to live in Alexandria anyway and with metro the commute isn't much longer to D.C. if your wife gets a job in the city.
