I voted for Anderson.

In terms of ranking, I'd say they're similar... at least if you go by Poets and Quants consolidated rankings. But who cares about rankings!

Go with Anderson because of their placement for tech! The 50k is a huge added bonus. And school is a new journey in life - why not make a lot of new friends and explore a new city?

I agree, unless you are planning to fly right back to NYC after graduation, I would go for Anderson. One note is that goals change while you are in BSchool. I have seen 80-90% of people here change their decisions (or they were changed for them) in terms of where they recruit and end up working but these schools are close enough. $50 is worth taking. Obviously a lot can be said about staying put vs. change of scenery - that really depends on what you are looking for (security vs. adventure). _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News Rankings progression - last 10 years in a snapshot - New!

UCLA is damn good in placing people in the tech industry and with the$$$ helping you financially , you would not be carrying the monster of MBA debt on your back. The location will eventually come into context. Staying close to the tech industry will give you first hand experience and will allow you to meet people in local events and career forums. It might be possible in NYC but my guess is most of the events in NYC would revolve around financial aspect of business.

I would go with Anderson in this situation, unless you REALLY want to work in NY after graduating.
