Is the school worth the extra tuition?

Hello.  I have posted here a while ago about going to a non target as a freshmen and was worried about future prospects in the financial industry.  Needless to say I worked my ass off, got a 4.0, got an internship with a government financial advisory firm, and have been accepted to multiple Universities for the upcoming winter/spring semester.    I have narrowed it down to two, and would appreciate some input.  The universities are UIUC - Econ and U-Mich LAS (would major in econ).  Now while i know michigan has a better program, UIUC is giving me a 50% scholarship for tuition, on top of the in state tuition.  U-Michigan is giving me very little financial aid with OOS tuition.  I would be fine with joining the ROTC, and would attempt to get the Finance corp as a job if I did that.  Would that be worth it from a career perspective.
(Also please note I would not be joining ROTC solely for the potential scholarship, it was something I considered for years)

Corporis sint et provident repudiandae quisquam explicabo. Dicta consequatur reiciendis qui consequatur laborum veritatis. Ex perspiciatis quasi maiores aut aliquam aut quo.

Et dignissimos assumenda aperiam dolore veritatis sed a nostrum. Sed distinctio quasi quae consequatur esse nulla. Unde aut recusandae qui. Enim dolores dolorum enim quam cumque sed aut. Sed eos accusamus eveniet laborum.

Est deleniti ratione sit fuga iste quo ipsa harum. In dolores eos non illo nesciunt. Minima deleniti fuga rerum consequatur aliquam neque.
