While the info you shared makes it seem like it’s not a life changer if you finish or don’t, I think for your own personal achievement you should push to find somewhere to transfer. You’ve clearly put in a lot of time, effort, and money so why not just push to get that little piece of paper that “proves” you did the work. It might not change the game for you but you never know when it’ll help With that said, of course consider your mental health and financial status before pouring more time and money in if this is absolutely not what you want to do

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.
