Since you are aiming for top schools then a score above 700 is desirable. However GMAT alone won’t determine your chances of admission; beyond the academics will also help you in determining your candidature and your work experience plays a vital role as well. Although you’re GPA could be an issue.

So to assure that your GPA won’t be an issue, if you can tell in your application about the skills that you gained at work and beyond in the areas you had scored low would put you in better position. You need to indicate a positive learning from your bad experience. If you took any extra classes or courses in the subjects that you didn’t do well and highlight your zeal to learn and improve it could also improve your low GPA situation.

Generally applicants have a good 4-5 years of work experience. Although it is not just the work experience that counts but also what you did there like-what were your achievements, what initiative you took, what changes you drove in your workplace etc. So to leverage you need to ensure that in 3.5 years of work experience you have demonstrated the skills business schools are looking for. This could still put in a strong set of essays for you. Start thinking what makes you unique and what’s that ‘hook’ that will be key to your application.

Make sure you follow the ‘show rather than tell’ principle so that the admissions committee could really understand your strengths and differentiating factors.” Hence the quality of your work, your academics and beyond academics will play an important role in determining your candidature.
