I agree with the above. FWIW, my thoughts on VC as a career...most successful VCs never started their career with the "intention of landing a VC gig". A VC job IMO comes to you as opposed to you going to it. Start a company, be a successful entrepreneur, be an early employee at a hugely successful startup...that's how a VC job will come to you. Not by just attending an MBA course or working in MC / IB. In my experience it happens both ways. One friend became a VC by business school>McKinsey>VC; another was a serial entrepreneur. They both are successful.
