HELP! VC Internship + Cambridge masters or IB again at worse bank?

What the title says. Did a VC stint at a small shop down south but the pay is not ideal so trying to leave. Started off at a BB. Went to a top10 undergrad school in the US.

Option A: do a VC internship at a blue chip VC fund full-time this summer/early fall (upgrade from current fund) and do a masters at Cambridge for a subject I’m interested in and ideally return full time. Internship doesn’t pay well though so $ would be tight until October. Rich family can support.

Option B: go back to IB and receive a nice $ bump. Do the VC internship just part time.  Then I could recruit for another VC shop from there. Only thing is, the IB job would be at a MUCH worse bank than I was at before. Might look odd on my resume.

Thoughts?
