approximate interest rate for HELOC will be around 5% or 6% right now - depends on what rate the US govt. sets.
My HELOC is Prime + .5% , which is total of 4.5% for now.
If I were you, I would definately get a JOB when you move to US and get settled in for a year or so before you get into any business.
You have a LOT to learn about the country, US laws n regulations, not to mention real estate investing
If you can get a MBA at Harvard - I say go for it! You will always have time later to work on REI
