If you are in the median range of your target schools’ verbal and quant scores, I wouldn’t worry. Alternatively, if only the quant part is off, see if you can alleviate that thru optional essay by emphasizing quant heavy background you might have. It all depends on which schools you are applying to. M7, yes, definitely give it again as there will be better candidates based on test scores for the first round of filters. You don’t want to be singled out due to your low scores.

Those scores are essentially the same. Take it again if you think you can get higher! Schools will generally interpret your GRE as a lower GMAT score so the higher the better

Tbh when you do the GRE to GMAT conversion, they tend to be lower ex. Harvard's basically translates to a 710 which is 20 below their median GMAT

Everyone is going to wonder what your GMAT was (including on job apps). Nice that bschools take the GRE, though.
