The university sees that as an additional skill and believes that a single task cannot sum up all the ability. Office of admissions also highly encourage an interview. Make sure to request recommendations at least one month prior to the due date and consider including a copy of your resume or personal statement along with it.

Also, GPA matter but the good part is that they don't judge a candidate just on the basis of GPA but on the overall performance. Not just academic but also the extra-curricular is paid attention.
