undergraduate schools



I was wondering if anybody knows if grad schools take into consideration where you went to get your Bachelor's. For example, if someone gets a 3.8 GPA at a lower ranked school versus someone who gets a 3.4 GPA at a higher ranked school. Would they take the person who got a 3.8 over the person who got a 3.4?

Graduate admissions offices often have their officers focus on different groups of universities and colleges by location. So one officer will be an expert on undergraduate institutions in the west, one in the east, one in the midwest, etc. So when a student has a lower GPA from a higher ranked school, the officer familiar with that school can explain why it is better than a high GPA at a different school. To this extent, they take where you get your bachelor's into consideration.
