Both are strong programs. The first question I have is which area are you more interested in staying in post-graduation, California or the North East? A large benefit of an MBA program will be the networking, which is why it helps so much to study in the location where you expect to work. Also, the industries in each location differ. This should also be a consideration.
Hope to hear from you.
