    GRE is going to be a big problem ... why did not you take it again?

    A 164Q score (about the 88th percentile or so?) won't be viewed that positively at top 20 schools but outside of that it won't hold you back. I'd expect that your research experience and good grades will get you a funded admit around the top 20-30. If you could get the GRE up to 166 or higher and get a letter of recommendation from someone other than a lecturer, I'd be more confident.
