It will be tough for you to get into some of the top European schools. Your GPA is on the lower end and a 700 GMAT, while good, isn't great. The fact that European schools will know about your schools ranking will also hurt some. I can see you being competitive with IE and ESADE though.

I think the Asian schools will like you though. European experience, fine stats, etc.

LBS - if you apply for the MiM or MFA, you should be somewhat competitive. l consider Imperial easier to get into than LBS/LSE/Cambridge/Oxford, so you should have a good shot there.
