I dont think salaries matter much if you are changing careers. However, if you work in banking or consulting and are returning to those then it may be a factor. I know a person who went to school, leaving a job as a VP at a bulge bracket bank. I am sure his former position and salary will play a roll in what he gets post grad. He sure isnt going to be an associate making 100K.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
