What other career options are you considering besides VC? Do you want to stay in the US after graduation (if so, any location preferences?) or do you wish to return to your home country (where are you from?)?
aerien, I'm open to a range of fields including general management, business development, product management and possibly management consulting. I plan to stick around in the US (Northeast) after graduating, but do intend to move back to India after a few years - hence the concern about long-term brand value.
