I currently attend a West Coast target school and recently received an SA 2020 offer from a solid west coast FSG (think CS LA, BAML SF, Barclays LA). However, I am not 100% sure on whether to accept. To give context, while PE exit opps at this office are definitely great and I don't mind going to PE, I want to eventually work long-term in venture capital. To be honest, I am not sure how feasible it is with an FSG background; people have told me that TMT coverage would be better suited for placing into top VC funds.
Personally, having interned in tech and VC before, I believe I have a strong-enough experience to secure first rounds with strong tech groups (GS, JPM, Evercore). Getting the offer is a different ball-game, but I think I'd have a decent shot. The real issue on my mind is that their timelines don't start until after this current offer expires, which is in 2 weeks.
What would you all suggest I do? Should I accept the offer and try converting FT, decline and keep recruiting, accept and keep recruiting (is this option common/reasonable?), or anything else? I would really appreciate some advice, as I honestly can't make up my mind with what I considered so far.
