1.       Is GMAT given more preference over GRE?

No. There is no preference given to one over the other. Both the exams would be weighted equally in your profile evaluation.

There are no cut-offs for either of the tests. The scores along with your essays and recommendations add weight to your application. However, we had applicants apply to us with a GMAT range of 600 to 780, and a GRE range of 303 to 334, in the past.

Your scores need to be valid till your enrollment into the class. i.e. April 15, 2017 if you are applying to the Class of 2018. The application deadline, however, is January 15, 2017

No. ISB follows a unified admissions and placement process for Class. The process is common for all and has no bearing on which campus you study or prefer.
