I took GMAT yesterday and got 650 (Q49 & V31) after preparing for 3 months (took Kaplan
classroom too). My expectation was 700+. My practice tests and GMATClub.com's score estimator were estimating 720. I am not sure what went wrong, but did poorly in verbal than I expected. Should I take GMAT again?

Thank you and I appreciate your help.
In any case, if you want to have a serious chance at the schools on your list, you need to retake the GMAT. Since your practice tests predicted a higher score, you probably just had an off day, and it really pays for you to try again. With this score, you would really need to modify your list of schools.
