Hi Ena, All schools and programs are different. In my case, the higher your GPA, the lower the GMAT threshold and vice versa. Many schools or academic departments review your application as a whole and complete a wholesome review of your GPA, GMAT scores, extra-curricular activities, professor recommendations, references, essay etc. Even if you have a outstanding GPA, I would still strive to do your best on the GMAT. Best, Elizabeth

It's hard to speak for all schools but both are important. You can buy study guides to prepare for the GMAT's.
