Undergraduate psychology major with a low GPA

Has anyone here graduated from college with a really low GPA, far below a 3.0? If so, did you apply to graduate school or look for a job?

I am an undergrad student at Hunter College, New York, majoring in Psychology. Right now, I have a 2.45 cumulative GPA. I earned 93 credits. I messed up during my freshman and sophomore years because I was immature. I watched movies and listened to music instead of studying. I am working as a lab technician at a neuroscience lab. I am planning to get a Masters degree in social work or counseling. I will try to raise my GPA to a 3.0 by the time I graduate. If I will end up with a 2.4 GPA, would it be impossible to get into a graduate school? Could I get a good job with only a Bachelors degree in Psychology?
P.S. I am 24 years old. I will probably get my Bachelors degree when I will be 26 or 27.
