Is it generally easier to get into your undergrad alma mater, or does it not really matter?

Thanks

mmm..i wouldnt say easier..but it is an advantage because all of your resources are within your reach...my undergrad does not have a medical school but there is one like around the corner and is affiliated with us...so i take advantage of those people as much as possible. I shadowed doctors there, i spoke to admissions there, i have worked there..the opportunities are endless..

I've heard a mixed review on this topic. So I don't think you'll be getting an accurate answer.

But if you're good enough to get into your alma mater you should be good enough for someone else's alma mater, if you know what im sayinggggg

Yeah, I'd agree that there are some mixed opinions about this. But generally what I heard was that some universities would rather you explore some other options/places rather than just sticking with the familiar, so to speak.

In Canada, yes (infinitely easier!)

In the US, from what I've seen here, no it doesn't seem to matter as much.
