High School Senior- College Decision

So this is an unprecedented year for admissions, and tonight wrapped up all my college decisions (note to any future applicants, do not talk about adding intellectual diversity to campus by being a southern white male conservative...). Please note that my goal is to work in either management consulting or IB out of undergrad. What do y'all rank my options/waitlist opportunities in order? Which options should I accept over Mendoza if they were to become available (besides Wharton obviously)?

Acceptances: Notre Dame guaranteed Mendoza, U Mich (Ross decision is still pending), W&L, Clemson Honors &Lyceum Program.

Waitlists: UPenn Wharton, Vanderbilt, Duke, Georgetown (McDonough), UVA, Wash U St. Louis (Olin).

Of the acceptances, Michigan for sure if you can get into Ross or if you're smart enough to handle engineering

Of the waitlist, Penn > everything else, and Duke is good but it's worth pointing out that Duke also has one of the most beautiful campuses in the world + good weather
