What defines a solid GRE score?

So I have received a bunch of resumes for some upcoming interviews I have to handle for the local office of my firm (in Asia). It seems a good number of resumes have listed their GRE scores instead of a GMAT or an SAT, which I assume is because they are looking in parallel at graduate programmes - most of these kids have engineering and quant-heavy degrees. And although I am from an engineering background myself, I have no idea about what the top range of GRE scores are. Anyone care to enlighten me?

Hey My Name is Jeff, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I am sad to say, but this thread is lonely, so thought I'd post in here to try and help out. Some potential topics that might help:

There's a GRE to GMAT converter on GRE's official website. Other than that what I heard is you need a minimum of 328 to get an interview from Harvard.

I have a 330 in GRE (163 VERBAL &167 QUANTS) and that translates to 730 on the GMAT and is in 98% ile in GRE.

Thanks. That gives a fair idea then.

Seems odd to put a test score on the resume.

Not at all. I put my GMAT on my resume, and I'm pretty sure it greatly improved my chances at my interviews with MBB and my current firm. But as expected, no questions were asked of it.

Whats the general rule on listing GMAT on the resume - only if 700 or above? or higher?

Your score isn't that solid unless it registers on Vegeta's scouter:

What's a scouter?
