Hey /biz/

Looking for some feedback on career related questions. I think I have myself figured out quite well and I know most of this board (90% is trash), but that 10% can be pretty critical and logical and I appreciate that.
So here is my story, I went to a third tier university in Canada. I had descent highschool marks (high 80s low 90s), but didn't really know the importance of school. My marks really sank (below a 3.0 GPA) when my father died around 2/3rd year, as I had to help out the family business, and decided to still stay in school.
Fast forward to now, I am a 4th year. In my 2nd year I was able to get an internship at a boutique PE firm part time. In my 3rd year I was able to get into a summer internship at a Credit Rating agency and there is a strong chance I will be getting a Buy-side internship in the summer at TD. I am writing CFA L1 in June and I am going to graduate likely in Fall/Winter 2016/2017. I've also done many competitions and started our own finance group where we've done company pitches every term. This year I have been getting As/Bs while balancing my life and looking to finish very strong so I have a story of improvement as a pitch. (Whether its for jobs or Grad school)
I also manage a $500k portfolio for some friends/ex-bosses that I worked for in my highschool years and have a blog where I post my ideas, stock pitches and analysis on world events, to keep myself sharp and have a portfolio of work to share.
>>
My goal is to work at NYC, but my concerns are:
- I don't have connections there
- Getting a Visa may be a bitch (i.e. why would they hire me when there is a descent talent pool there that doesn't need to be brought over)
- My work experience would not likely be seen as relevant, small PE firm, credit rating agency and even the TD Asset management gig

My longer term goal is to work in Buy Side, it really makes my blood pump. I am thinking of possibly going there and just networking non-stop for a few weeks, but that may be fruitless or potentially getting some sort of job for a few years and then getting an MBA in the States at a top school, work on getting high GMAT scores in the meantime and continue doing my own little thing.
I am not sure if anyone here had any kind of similar experiences, but input would be appreciated
