Yes, I'm a reapplicant because last year I got 7 rejections from 7 programs. I have turned that around and gotten into 5 programs and an interview at a 6th program this year. So even if you don't get any acceptances this year, it might end up for the best. Honestly, last year I was ready to go anywhere even if I was unhappy there. Around the end of February I started looking for more programs to apply to. In retrospect, I'm glad things have turned out the way they did because I've gotten into at least 2 programs that I have a very strong interest in (due to paranoia, I won't mention WHICH two).
I have 1130 combined regular GRE and last year I had a 550 PGRE with a 3.35ish GPA (my GPA went up to 3.45ish because of senior year grades). Honestly, depending on where you applied, you still have a chance to get into some programs. I had 3 or 4 waitlists last year that didn't turn into rejections until late March or so. I wouldn't start sweating yet if I were you. I have a friend who had a 600 (even I think) on the PGRE and didn't get in anywhere until the first or second week of March (he got into UT-Austin and Ohio State). If you have a solid analytical writing score and verbal regular GRE, that can help a lot (schools don't give 2 craps about quantitative GRE).
Hang in there!
