From what I have read, I do agree with the pecking order - Med -> Law -> Business.
I also have an MBA, but I didn't think it was THAT easy. I'd say that about 60% of the classes were only moderately tough. That is, they expected grad school level work out of you. I'd say about 20% were pretty tough, and the last 20% were very difficult. I still have nightmares about managerial accounting.
A lot of it depends on your business school, too.
There are a lot of projects, and you are competing against your peers in head-to-head competitive models based on the subject matter. This part didn't stress me out, however. I got stressed out by the difficult subject matter in accounting, economics, finance, and statistics. The tests in the most difficult classes were the hardest I've ever encountered.
There are a lot of different disciplines you must learn while getting your MBA. Management, stats, accounting, finance, economics, human resources, marketing, etc. You can't just learn one area like it's your major, and then coast through later classes. Of course, some classes are harder than others.
