IU Kelley or Farmer School business @ Miami(OH) for Business Econ undergrad

Hey guys, I am a senior who was recently admitted into both the Kelley and Farmer School of Business for business Econ. Kelley would be 25k more expensive due to OOS. I like the undergrad strength at Farmer but I've seen ppl talk so much about Kelley that I'm not really sure. Do any alums have opinions, My main goal is probably either REPE, Big 4 consulting, or MM IB in the Midwest. Any Advice?

Is Kelley 25k more expensive total or per year? If total, I would just go with the one you prefer but if per year, probably Farmer.

IU has better overall placement but I've seen Miami (OH) kids break in to banking roles in NYC (I would guess Chicago presence is better based on geography). I don't think IU is worth paying $100k more over four years.

Both are good schools for what you are targeting and I'm very familiar with both. I'm an FSB grad now on the buyside, and I loved my 4 years in Oxford. You can absolutely get to REPE, big 4 consulting or MM IB from Farmer. They also have an investment banking workshop - not as prestigious as Kelley's but does help with placement. If money is the biggest factor, pick Farmer. If money is not the biggest factor, pick based on fit - Miami and IU have similar student body types (at least in the Greek systems) but also have some notable differences. For example, Miami is smaller, larger % of student body goes Greek (I personally would not recommend going to Miami if you don't want to go Greek but I'm a few years out so maybe it's changed) , not a Big 10 sports school, etc.

Also, one other notable difference is the vast majority of my business / major classes at FSB were ~20 - 35 students. I think I had 3 large lecture-hall style classes in FSB throughout my 4 years.
