Hi, I have been struggling with a decision between the following 3 schools since I got accepted and was looking for some guidance.

First a little bit of background. I am an independent consultant based out of Maryland, who is interested in eventually pursuing my own entrepreneurial venture. Because of my entrepreneurial leanings I applied to Babson. I also applied to Maryland because it was local, and finally applied to NYU because it was always a dream school for me.

I got into the part time program for all 3 schools. I have put down the deposit on both Babson and Maryland because I haven't been able to make up my mind. I have 2 more weeks to put down my deposit for NYU..but I feel like I would just be wasting money. I like Babson because of it's entrepreneurial focus, I wouldn't have to move since you only meet on campus once every 7 weeks, and its flexible part time program, but the fact that it is not a well recognized program has sort of put me off a bit and the fact that one of the core pieces of an MBA experience is engaging with others and I am not sure how much Babson would allow me to do that..

I like Maryland because it is local (means wouldn't have to move) and has a decent program, but it doesn't stand out in any particular way.

And like I mentioned I like NYU because it has always been a dream school of mine, even though it is much more costly, I would have to move in a very short time period and find another job assignment in New York and their entrepreneurial focus is not as extensive as the other two schools.

If you had to rank these in order, given my constraints above, would you have any recommendations. I would appreciate any advice because I have gone back and forth on all 3.
