You have a decent profile with good GMAT Score. You are in perfect stage of your career. As per your GMAT Score i would recommend you to target Cornell, Tepper, USC and Kelley which falls in the range of 690-700 average GMAT Score. LBS, INSEAD, Tuck, Darden and Michigan needs a high GMAT Score so they are out of reach, but Darden and Michigan can be stretched if you showcase your essays and profile in a very good way.
There are many more but the above list comprises of a few good ones you should definitely target. It is highly advisable in your case to focus on your application evaluation essays. This is where you can demonstrate your leadership qualities, achievements, professional vision and other abilities. A well presented and perfectly written essay is absolutely critical to make a strong case for yourself during the final interview and more so when you have an average GMAT score.
The next step for you is to focus more on your application essays & recommendations for these Business Schools.
It is advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance who can more closely review your situation and provide you with a list of B Schools where you would have chances of converting your application to admission. You should also get your essays reviewed from them before sending it along with your application to better your prospects.
