MSc in Finance picks in Europe

I just got my GMAT score, pretty disappointed in myself. I got 690, which is 20 points higher than the first take. I had a +700 practice score but somehow ended up having 690.

I'm planning to apply for a MSc in Finance in Europe for next year intake. I'm thinking ESADE, ESSEC, EDHEC because they have a lower average GMAT profile. I thought about ESCP but they require C1 french fluency.

What school should I apply for with this score? Do I stand a chance at either ESSEC or ESADE?

I'm not a big fan of banking, I'd prefer equity research given the flexible hours and good exits to L/S MM HFs. I have an internship coming up for equity research as well. London is the ultimate plan of course, but with the growth of finance in Paris I might opt for Paris, if I can learn French.

Would love some insight here.
Thank you!!
