ALL the Universities want to do is to psycho you into thinking that they have the best students with the highest paid graduates. This is called MARKETING.

Then again, you can't really blame them cos the truth is humans live self-fullfilling lies. Yes lies. We put up the lies, and we go about trying to fulfil it.

The statistics are ALWAYS biased. They perform very focused sampling, but they call it grab sampling. That is, they pick from the best student groups and then say they are representative of the entire cohort.

Then again, it has its pros and cons. Its one good way to keep the economy from slumping into 'depression'.

Out of the 10,000 accountancy graduates yearly, less than 5 will become partners? There are only 3 large auditing firms based here. The rest are smallish local ones. The road to partnership, of which most do not reach is also mediocre in remuneration- along which they earn even less than creative professionals like PR and marketing.
