Should I pick UCLA over UWM business school?

Hi there. So as the title suggests, is UCLA(business economics) better than UWM(admitted as risk management) when coming down to business? I want to break into Wallstreet if possible in the future but it seems like UWM has a higher business ranking compared to UCLA. I am really determined to work hard in college after being waitlisted by so many top business schools(UNC, Umich, CMU, BC, UCB). That just made me realize that I am not as good as I thought(smh to my old ego). So yeah, is UCLA a better choice(I live in CA too)? And what are some suggestions for me except for working hard in college? Please give me some advices and I will be really appreciated for them.
