    There is no simple answer to this.  Graduate school is generally less competitive than undergraduate but there may be other factors at work such as a need to attend an in-state university for financial reasons.

    If you have an undergraduate degree from a poorly ranked university, being able to get from there into a top ranked graduate school to study a serious subject is far more impressive than the other way around.
