I think you should aim for a 720 minimum for the top schools given your undergrad GPA and the fact that you are, I assume, an Indian IT consultant, a profile they see a lot of. You will need to do whatever you can to stand out. Leadership stories are important, but so are intensive community involvements (showing leadership, if possible), and even unusual hobbies and personal experiences.
In terms of choosing where to apply

Management or Management Consulting:
