I don't think so Gary and neither does Bruce R. McConkie:
"Only an elder! Only the office which enables a man to enter the new and
everlasting covenant of marriage and to have his wife and children bound
to him with an everlasting tie; only the office which prepares a man to
be a natural patriarch to his posterity and to hold dominion in the house
of Israel forever; only the office required for the receipt of the
fullness of the blessings in the house of the Lord; only the office which
opens the door to eternal exaltation in the highest heaven of the
celestial world, where man becomes as God is.

I would say that you don't have to hold the priesthood to make it into
the lower realm of the celestial kingdom and you don't have to be a High
Priest to be exalted in the highest. I see the office of High Priest as
pertaining to this earth only. The same with apostle too.
