Getting above a 700 on the GMAT is not a guarantee of getting into the school of your choice. Each b-school is different; each is better in certain areas than others. The school will look at your overall application packet and consider your GMAT score as only one factor. Someone that gets a 780 on the GMAT might be very, very, very smart, but have no work experience, or possess no leadership skills. A top b-school is probably going to want someone that demonstrates more than just book smarts or intellect.

All that said....getting a 700+ is a great place to start ;)

A 700+ doesn't gaurantee you admission to any school really. Schools evaluate your profile, your experience, and your extracurriculars to assess your ability and character.

Many applicants with dings have 720+ gmats. I wouldn't put your eggs all in one basket and say that a 700+ will get you into your dream school. That being said, you haven't mentioned which are your "dream" schools.
