What are the GRE and GMAT cutoffs for MBB roles for post-MBAs?

From what I’ve learned, but not 100% sure:

Don’t think there is a hard cutoff, but 700+ is ideal. Anything less than that might be tough to swing, though might be easier if you went to an M7

You really should be at the average or higher for your school to be competitive compared to your peers though

Think 323 GRE is sufficient? Will be at Wharton if that’s relevant

What are the minimum GRE for BA to get into m7 out of MBB?

I’m struggling between 2 offers:
MBB SA (175K TC) and FANG Financial Analyst (220K TC). I’ve wanted to work for MBB for 4 years, but I’m about to head to get an MBA. Neither will sponsor but MBB will allow me to come back as post-MBA level even with ~4 months of experience pre-MBA. Can I go wrong here? I don’t know what I want to do long term yet and I’m hoping my MBA can help me figure it out
