As per statistics in ISB site, Only 5% of the people are below 650 score.

Your chances are better if your score is around 700. I would recommend 700+ as ISB is gaining reputation after the ranking in top 20. As you are aiming to join in 3 years, it will be even tougher to get in. I would recommend improving your score by another 10% .

For ISB the 80% GMAT score distribution is 680-760 with average being 716. At the sametime ISB has admitted applicants with score as low as 600.

The problem is usually with the most typical pool - IT Indian Males. If you are from this pool, you surely should target around 720. A good gmat score will keep you competitive :). Otherwise anything around 700 (+-20) is pretty good.

Having said that, ISB loves adding diversification. So if you are from a job background which is quite unique, a lower score would also work. With the current score of 640, you'll need to have something extra-ordinary in your application and must have very strong essays.

I surely feel that your profile would be different from the typical pool. 8-)
Btw, I'm not in ISB. This yr I tried but couldn't get through. Maybe next yr I would be applying again.
