Some b schools will weight quant more for either test.. many will prefer gmat to gre… none will admit to any of this though

GMAT percentiles drop exponentially with scores in Quant. So, maybe try to get around 49 on GMAT quant, which ain't tough and you'll touch 75%ile. As far as GRE vs GMAT is concerned, take your overall score into consideration as well!

Take both and see what happens
