Hello sal37

The outline of your profile looks solid- work ex, past acads, extracurricular all look balanced.
Assuming you are applying next year, you will also have years of work ex in the sweet spot for ISB.
Unfortunately, career goals have not been mentioned and that makes the profile evaluation incomplete.
A 700+ in your specific case could serve you well though.
You may want to read here on what factors to focus on in your written application and here to add to your research on career goals.

Given your work experience, it is the most common profile (Software Developer) for applications to ISB. Therefore, it is your extra curriculars and your motivation (through your essays) that will stand out. You seem to have been putting good efforts through your internships and those would definitely earn you brownie points. However, you need to highlight significant achievements from your work ex in your essays. Things that make you distinguished from your peers. As far as GMAT is concerned, there is never a perfect score. That said, higher the better but something around 710-720 should give you a good chance of getting an interview call, provided your essays clearly convey your story. For now, I would recommend you to focus on achieving a good GMAT score and then look ahead.

Good luck!
