I tend to think this is true. I graduated from a very difficult school with top grades and it was a lot of work. . . and I was surprised to see graduates from less difficult schools who had good gpas get accepted to the kinds of schools I wanted to get into.
It didn't seem fair. But I have had the consolation of knowing my undergraduate education was better.
