Help Deciding Which College To Transfer To

Currently, I am a student-athlete at Florida Atlantic University. I am entering my sophomore year, and I am seeking to transfer because I have heard the horrors of attempting to enter Investment Banking from a school like FAU. I have kept my grades high throughout my educational career and will retake the SAT/ACT this June.
HS GPA: 4.0
FAU GPA: 3.9
ACT: 26
I have gotten my release from the athletics team and have been in contact with a few colleges in the Northeast where I am mainly seeking to study. This brings me to the main dilemma. After speaking with colleges like Colgate, Fordham, Georgetown, and Bucknell, I am conflicted at whether it is a better decision to go to a worse school like Hofstra where there would be free education or have loans coming out of Georgetown. There is no support coming from parents so the only aid I would receive is financial aid.

TL;DR: Is it better to go to a better school and come out with loans or go to an average school and come out with no debt?

If there are any ideas I would love to hear! Thank you in advance!

Depend on if you can handle debt. And how much (underestimate is better) can you borrowJob outcome will be similar @ hofstra vs your current school
