Wharton, Harvard, and Columbia

I was accepted to Wharton, Harvard, and Columbia for MBA class of 2020. Harvard with no money. Wharton with ~40% tuition. Columbia with 100% tuition. Pre-MBA experience is IB (bulge bracket) and PE (MM ~1 billion AUM). Post-MBA I want to (1) secure a PE or VC role, or (2) find a business partner in b school and do something entrepreneurial. When I started this process, I was in a HBS or bust mindset. However, I didn't expect Wharton/Columbia to come with the fellowships. Maybe I could get a little more from Wharton if I told them I really wanted to come?

Just curious how folks would evaluate the decision.
