Maximizing Candidacy

I am a current senior in college and already am thinking about grad school. My mom works at a M7, which would drastically cut the cost of tuition. I attend a well-respected business school but am worried that my 3.3 GPA is a red flag. I am a student-athlete and apart of a few executive boards on campus. I know acing the GMAT could be an option, but do you think I have a chance based on a lower GPA? Any advice regarding what I could add to my candidacy would be appreciated.

For context- I am a non-minority Male.
