For starters, a 680 is a great GMAT score. Don't be put off by not having the coveted 7-handle on your score. The truth is, even for those schools who have a posted average GMAT over 700, most applicants are not submitting scores above 700. Sure, they are trying to admit several stratospheric scores to keep their average up, but in theory for every 750 they admit, they can admit two 680 applicants and still stay above a 700 average. Your 680 is plenty good enough to get into a top school so long as the rest of your package provides a compelling and passionate case for admission. The great part about a 680 is that it is still high enough that it's not really going to but an inordinate drag on their average. I have personally witnessed even students get in with GMATs in the low 500's (even saw one woman get in a top 10 school with a 490). It's truly all about the whole package. Your best bet now is to put your focus on your applications, and make sure you get them in for Round 2 and avoid round 3 where there are precious few slots left. Make sure you get someone to take a look at your application and essays (doesn't have to be a consultant, but might be good if they have an MBA or have been through the process either with b-school or law school). Hope this helps!
