    Sorry, but YES. You need at least GPA of 3.0 in order to have some chances for interview. And the higher TOEFL, the better. Part 1/2 really doesn't matter so much, but try to pass them. Skills are essential as you will have a practical exam to pass.
    Good luck! :luck:

    Hi gd55,
    Don worry abt u r gpa.If u got good part 1 score, definately u will be in one or other school.i know tons of people got acceptance with good part 1 score inspite of low gpa.
    so forget abt it and conc. on u r part 1 .
    All d best

    Hi DDS1,
    I have no idea who told you that. I would suggest you lookup other threads before discouraging anyone.
    @gd55, I had a gpa of 2.4 and I got into NYU.
    Get 90+ in your part1 and you will easily get in. In case you get less than 90, you might have to struggle a bit. I got 88 and had to do 'clinical research' program. I got a gpa of 4 in it and managed to prove them that the gpa wasn't a true reflection of my potential.
    If you have the drive, you will get in!
    All the best
