1) Don't misspell "border" and "academic" on your application.
2) Figure out what you want to do and start researching what schools offer that program. Narrow down the list of schools you'd want to go to and visit their websites. Almost every school will list what the requirements are to get in. Once you've done this, study your ass off and take the GRE/GMAT (depending on the program) and get a really high score. If I'm honest, most places won't look at you with a GPA that's under a 3.0 unless you ace the GRE/GMAT. Even then it will be very difficult. Most have a minimum requirement of 3.0. As far as your hopes of a GA, that's also not likely. There might only be 10 to 20 GA spots depending on the size of the program and those will go to the candidates with the highest GPA's and test scores.
Also, if you are going into a completely unrelated field like Business, you'll probably have to complete a bunch of pre-reqs just to get in.
