It all depends which all B school u want to apply for..
If u are looking for top 20, it's always good to be above 700, rather some of them average betn 680-720..
also depends upon ur GPA, if it's low, scoring really high (750+) will strengthen ur application and negate the effect of low GPA..

There's no guarantees someone scoring 750+ will get in, as MBA admissions committees take a holistic approach to the admissions process. Using the same holistic approach, they're not going to automatically ding someone who scores a 650. Although a higher score can obviously help negate other weak parts in an application, it's not a make or break issue.

Unless you are a Mckinsey Consultant/ GS Analyst a 700 is sub par for Top 10, you may get in but remember there will always be people with better profile and slightly lower GMAT score than you. The only way to take the GMAT out of the equation is to get a 740+.
