Is it true that unless I score 700 on GMAT, I should not apply to top schools such as Harvard, Wharton, Insead, or ISB Hyderabad and IIM-A in India?

Last year, over 10% of candidates who made it to top b-schools such as Kellogg, Berkeley Haas, and Columbia had GMAT scores of 680 or below. The lowest score at most Ivy league schools for last year's intake was around 560-580.
