Your current GMAT - 650 - is on lower side, I would suggest you to take a break and retake.

Point in your favor - You are not an indian male IT applicant (the most competitive pool) , but still you need 700 for the schools mentioned by you.

Rest, I am unable to see concrete leadership experience across your profile, so for remaining days (till Oct 2012)

1) Retake GMAT
2) Look out for some leadership position at work or outside work (EC)

Hope this helps !

Good Luck
