Have full time post under grad offers from a bank(sponsor finance group, credit analyst), and a consulting company for risk and compliance consulting. Not sure which one to go with. Both seem interesting and I don’t have any long term goals yet, what should I do? Which one will be best for long term career development?

I think you should heavily consider where you want to go in the long run. That will be your best bet in terms of identifying what you should be doing

Sponsor finance group

This is something you ought to decide yourself. Search these job descriptions on google and examine which one is better for you. In terms of career growth, both are great.

So I was talking to an old colleague who offered to recommend me to his MD for a lateral move into the group at AVP. He even asked me, are you absolutely sure you will be ok with a lateral move? And I said yes, as long as the MD agrees to make me a VP conditional on my performance in one year. I agreed because I am changing countries (not in NA). But, just given how much work experience I have (15 years sell and buy side), I want to tell my colleague that I want VP now. How to phrase this best?

I’ve been hearing that comp is decent (i.e., I did see on a H1B salary database that base for a PE senior associate is $175K, but who knows what cash bonus / carry looks like). No datapoints on culture yet
