The bigger question is why would anyone be an Admin Assistant post MBA from a top 20 school?

Why would your friend specifically want to work as an Administrative Assistant at an MBA top 20 school? EAs at lesser schools are probably paid decently too.

Also chief of staff is more likely to make more

Yes, some admin assistants make quite a lot. Especially at universities.

Clearly

I think the question is if an admin assistant does an MBA can they make that much (perhaps in a new job) post MBA. I guess the answer is maybe.

Good Executive Assistants make that much...but it's a tough job.

I've heard of EAs making 200k. Not at Big4 though.

D1 Where????

P4 working for CEOs. This came from a friend who worked for a staffing company. The role probably overlapped with chief of staff somewhat.

sorry guys. I meant what A3 rephrased. I posted this at 7AM on a Monday.. haha

Well if they get into a top 20 school, the admissions staff sure thinks they could. They would likely need some kick ass resume padding (like starting a non-profit that raised 7 figures to do something awesome) or be more in the chief-of-staff kinda role D1 mentioned.
