Thank you for your posting.
As an international student, you will need to score above a 680 (and above 75th percentile on each section) to be competitive at most top programs (regardless of location). For top 5 programs, you will need above a 700 to be considered competitive. Also, for international students, your TOEFL score is important and most competitive candidates score above 110.
Just also be sure to invest the time, energy and resources into making sure your application is top quality. While all aspects of your background can be competitive, a mediocre application can really damage your chances greatly. Applications are difficult and meant to be so - so make sure they are of the quality expected of competitive candidates.
Lastly, we have seen an uptick in interest from Brazilian candidates this year - so I am expecting the number of candidates applying to top programs will increase somewhat. This will make the landscape a bit more competitive at all top programs. This speaks all the more to performing well on your GMAT and submitting an application that really makes you stand out.
