It really depends on a few factors what you can do from here. It depends on your undergrad gpa, how well you can do on the MCAT, and whether you think you can get into a good MBA.
Perhaps also look into a few MS.Fin programs for another shot at recruiting if you really despise what you're doing right now? An education "restart" would probably be the most obvious choice.
I am in Charlotte, so I have that going for me, but regrettably, Finance majors in this area are a dime a dozen, as you pointed out.
A masters of finance is something Ive been researching as well. I guess Im just afraid to invest in more schooling without knowing what exactly I want to do, or if my less than impressive resume will allow me to do it in the first place. But I agree that an education restart is probably a good choice for me.
