    yup these r the people u gonna deal with in coming 4 yrs...
    anyways, coming to ur questions:
    1. How hard is it to get into a program in the US(preferably a 2 year one): it depends on lot of things... ur NBDE score, SOP, Resume, Experience after internship, LORs etc etc... but if u get good scores in NBDE, more than half the job is done.

    2. What Score range is good for the National Board Exams part 1 and 2: the more the better, no doubt bout that...

    3. What GPA should i maintain?: its easy to maintain good GPA in Manipal as compared to other colleges, so even a little effort will b fruitful... bottomline - Manipal is the best... so u starting with a good note...
    Baaki taan punjabi khud samajhdaar hunde ne... ALL THE BEST for future...
