Undergrad: Ross vs. Stern vs. UVA vs. Goizueta Scholars

I most likely want to go into management consulting (MBB), but I am not 100% sure yet. I may also decide to pursue IB or something else. Which of these undergrad schools would be the best for career opportunities? I eventually want to live and work in the NYC area.

I am currently deciding between UMich Ross, NYU Stern, UVA, and Emory's Goizueta Scholars.

Current Ross undergrad-we place quite well into management consulting but mostly in Chicago I think. NY consulting from Ross is a little harder, banking is a lot easier to New York. I don't know how the other two compare, but I would assume Stern has a NYC advantage?
