IU Kelley vs Emory

I have been accepted as a direct admit to Kelley school of business at IU and I have also been accepted to Emory University at the Oxford campus. I aspire to go into IB on Wallstreet and would want to then go into private equity. Which school should I attend to have the best chances of getting a good IB offer.

Both are respectable schools. Obviously aid comes into play but also fit. Kelly is a large D1 public school while Emory is a research- focused private university. Social scene is completely different and the classroom setting as well.

I'm not worried at all about the social scene or the type of university it is in respect to large or private research. I think I would love going to both. Im still unsure whether attending Emory vs IU Kelley would give me more opportunities in IB. Is Emory a clear choice because of how much more prestigious the overall school is?

It's Emory. Wasn't there literally an entire thread about these types of IU Kelley questions where people acknowledge it's a pretty good school, but these questions are dumb when it's obvious what the answer is and it's not even close
