What to do?
For instance, make at least one recommender emphasize the fact that you have been doing excellent ever since that semester.
If your recommenders are well known maybe they know people at the university that you want to apply? Explain your situation to them and ask them what they think?
I don't know how much time you've got for networking though...I thought most of these schools have Dec 15 deadline.
In the end if you've got money to apply it's always worth it to give it a try
