I don't know what you mean by final ranking, but your GPA and GMAT both matter while evaluating your profile. GPA cannot affect your GMAT score. If you have a bad GPA, there's nothing you can do about it. Just focus on GMAT and try to improve your profile and present your case in the best way possible. It's not the end of the journey!

All the best :)

GPA considered final ranking: if you mean it as admission process in the University==>
Admission in the US university is totally a holistic process. If your GPA is not so good, then it still will not destroy your admission chance in any specific university if your profile is more stronger in other side. I mean if your GPA is poor, then your GMAT score, work experience, Extra-curricular must be good enough so that you can exceed other students. But, there are some university, which directly says that you must have a specific GPA (e.g., 3.00 out of 4 in bachelor) to apply to the university. If this is the case then your GPA is matter.

GPA considered final ranking: if you mean it in calculating your GMAT score==>
No, there is no relation with GPA when GMAT score is finalized.

Your academic GPA would be considered in your overall cumulative profile score. You can't anything with your GPA now. Low GPA will be compensatated with high GMAT score. So please work on GMAT rather than worrying on GPA.

A strong GMAT score(90-99 percentile) always compensates for a lower GPA; However, You If you score a lower GMAT( worst case scenario) you might as well take up some short courses/diploma in your field and perform well in it.

Your GPA is not used in the calculation of your GMAT score.

Try to get as high a GMAT score as possible!!

All the best!!
