Undergrad UNC KF vs Michigan Ross vs UC Berkeley

I'm a very lost high school senior, who has luckily been admitted into a couple great schools which I've narrowed down to the three in the title. I'm in state at UNC and received a full tuition scholarship and direct admission into the business school, I've also been admitted into the Ross school of Business at Michigan but with no aid, and finally I was admitted into UC Berkeley but they have no guarantee of admission into Haas and no aid. Any advice whether it's what school you'd pick or how I can maximize the opportunities at each school would be appreciated!

Because it's a full ride at UNC and full cost at the others, If I were in your shoes I'd 100% take UNC unless there are significant personal factors that are drawing you to the others over it. You won't regret going to the 28th best school instead of the 24th or 22nd in exchange for over $250k in savings

If you're good enough for a full ride at UNC, you're good enough to land BBs here. EBs are a different story though, and if that's something you really want, UMich would probably be a better choice.

edit: nvm I thought this was the IB forum. UNC is not all a good school for MBB consulting unless you are fine with competing for the few spots we send to  Atlanta/Dallas MBB
