R2 with GMAT, R1 with GRE? [#permalink] New post 22 Jul 2014, 21:49
I had given GRE (Verbal: 160, 84 Percentile, Quant: 166, 96% Percentile) in January this year and now preparing for GMAT. I intend to apply to Harvard / Stanford / Wharton in this application cycle. I just gave my first CAT and my score estimate is around 650-670. I am confident that I can push it to 720 with a month's preparation but given that first time deadlines are so close, should I invest time and energy in it? given that these schools have started accepting GRE now as well.

Now I am facing this dilemma: (1) Submit my app in first round with GRE OR (2) Give GMAT and apply in second round

Also, in the absence of data for GRE averages for schools, is my score good enough?

Your GRE score is equivalent to about 700 in GMAT which is good enough, but still less than the average. If your application material is strong, you might not need to worry about it. However, if rest of your application is average and if you can push it up by 20-30 points, it can make a difference.
