You have a competitive profile for your target programs, but INSEAD is a stretch. Make sure you understand the different foreign language policies at these schools.

A higher GMAT never hurt anyone's chances :-) and could improve yours. I'm a little surprised at your quant score given your work and undergrad percentage, but am not convinced that you really should retake. If you quant percentile was >75%, then don't retake. The farther away from that number it is and in the wrong direction, the more you should consider a retake. I explored this question recently in a short video: Should You Retake the GMAT?

Best,
Linda
