    Host: Is it important to get into the top-ranked schools?

    David Petersam: For the best majority of applicants the answer is a resounding yes. A quite simply a lot of the top recruiters are only visiting the top business schools. They are not going to hire if you don't go to a top business school. When you look at that career ladder you just going to start off on a higher point, if you have attained one of the top business schools and then finally for July 2008, fresh graduates of past year had sole average salary increase at 7% from the top business schools which is incredible considering how the economy has been performing.
