Question on Shifting

I've had my 6spd manual for a month now and had a question on the shifting. I read about people complaining regarding 1st to 2nd shifts, which I don't see a problem with.

But I do notice when I go from 2nd to 3rd it seems to take more effort than a downshift from 4th to 3rd. It doesn't grind, but is that the "notchiness" that people talk about in regard to the M3 Tranny?
