UMich Ross vs Northwestern Undergrad

After applying to the Ross during my freshman year at UMich, I also applied to some schools as a transfer applicant in case I was denied from Ross, including Northwestern, which I was accepted to. Recently I was accepted by Ross for their BBA program and now I'm having trouble making a decision. My primary career interest is investment banking but I would like to blend my econ/finance coursework with computer science. Financially, I will be paying the same in tuition, room and board. I've been going back and forth between the schools and their OCR, internships, and location. If you have any thoughts on my situation, I would appreciate it.

As an Illini, I'd say Ross. Better recruiting for finance and more fun college experience. Also, there's a much bigger U of M presence in NYC.
