That GRE converts to a 650 GMAT or so and your GPA is about mid-range. I would probably put Imperial, Warwick, LSE (on of their "easier" MSc's to get into) on your list. Maybe UC-London also. Apply to 5-6 schools as your profile is good, but doesn't particularly stand out. Hope this helps.

Yeah, there are programs in the US that would be in your range. I'd like to see that GPA converted to to US standards as it would help me make a better assessment.
